Meet Dominic

Dominic is an eighth grade member of the Club’s Edwin Markham Middle School site. Living in Watts and having adapted to surroundings that are not always celebratory of big dreams, at first Dominic appears a bit shy and reserved. However, when asked the timeless question “What do you want to be when you grow up,” Dominic couldn’t have enough to say. His answer was not just one career but instead all the problems he would solve in the world by becoming an electrical engineer.


Dominic shared, “Football is fun but my favorite is STEM. We made our own 3D fidget spinners! I also like the help Ms. Raquel gives me in math. I need her when problems are hard…I want to save the environment by deciding how cities use electricity. I know I need to be good in math for that.”
