American Indian College Fund scholar Dominic talks about his path from his hometown of Navajo, New Mexico to Haskell Indian Nations University.
Prior to graduating Dominic was active on Haskell's basketball court as a member of the Fighting Indians team while studying hard to maintain his 4.0 grade point average.
In 2009, Dominic’s talents helped him land a prestigious internship at Nike, where he spent the summer of 2009 working at Nike headquarters on the grassroots marketing of the N7 shoe, which was designed specifically to fit Native peoples' feet to encourage them to be more active to help fight the diabetes epidemic in Indian Country. Dominic was hired to work full-time at Nike after his graduation from Haskell.
Like so many other tribal college graduates, Dominic wants to use his education to help others. Today he is studying to earn his master's degree in health policy at Arizona State University.
