last post of the year goes out to our wonderful freshman!

•I am Joshur mazzone

Truth and charity can easily be seen within the community. Everyone is always so friendly and welcoming that no matter where it is that you are from, you have a place here

•I am Isai hipolito
My major is Math and secondary education
C&T has made me realize I have made the right decision in coming to Dominican. All of my professors have shown true dedication to helping me to their best potential. I am member of RSA and DISC. Both have helped gain a nich here at Dominican.
I shared my story about my undocumented status coming out of the shadows.

My name is Nadiya Svyatylo. I started college wanting to become a nurse, and I was very passionate about it. I later realized that it was not something I wish to do in the future. Furthermore, I do not see myself working in this field. I was always told what I should do and what will be better for me. There comes a time when this ends and you need to do what is best for yourself. I understood that I will have to love what I do and not what someone else wants me to do. I changed my major to business. I love everything about numbers, problem solving, working with teams, and communications. My aspirations in life are to get a masters degree and have a loving family. There is a lot more in life that I desire and aim for. Most important thing to me is to appreciate every moment in life.

My name is Adriana Gawronski. I am the first in my family born in the US. I have been lucky enough to spend most of my summers in Poland and traveling throughout Europe to visit my family. My background plays a huge role in my interests and future career. One of those interests is soccer. Soccer has always been big in my family and taught me so much about hardwork, resilience, and teamwork. At DU, I had the opportunity to play for the women's soccer team. Going to the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history is one of the highlights of my time here. Because of the traveling I did, I fell in love with the beautiful cities and different cultures. While I experienced a lot of beauty, I also saw some pain and suffering that motivated me to do whatever I can to make the world a better place. I hope to work in either European politics, the UN, NGOs, and help people in need all around the world.

04/26/2019

I am Marco Sanchez, I am the third in my family to experience the college life. My Mexican roots taught me a lot throughout my years of living such as food and soccer. I love to cook and watch cooking shows in my spare time. My dad being an ex-professional soccer player in Mexico, he motivated me to play the sport he loved and I absolutely loved it. It also led me to find my favorite soccer team which is FC Barcelona. What’s funny is my dad goes for the rivalry team of Barcelona which is Real Madrid so you can imagine the fights and arguments on who’s better. It’s normal in our household! What makes me unique is the Simple fact that I love to interact with others. I love knowing I made someone’s day and made them overall happy! I’m a goofy person so I also love to make others laugh. My attitude and energy is always high and great. I am apart of the Dominican University Men’s Soccer Team and the one thing I learned was being able to manage your time wisely because that’s key to having a successful academic and sports career. It also shows life lessons that can go a long way in my life in the positive side. I’m a criminology major and I’m focusing on law enforcement. One goal is to hopefully work in the K-9 unit. Another goal of mine is to be able to provide my family a healthy lifestyle, be finically stable, and being able to travel the world as well.

My name is Megi Jasiewicz. I'm a first generation college student along with my sister however, the first out of my family to be born in the U.S. I'm following in my mother's footsteps in the science field by majoring in chemistry and further pursuing a career in forensics. What makes me unique at Dominican is my major. Many people stray away from chemistry while I find that I actually enjoy it. Aside from that, I am grateful to have made many friendships to help me throughout college. For my future career, I aspire to help bring justice to the crimes that are left unsolved and create a safer environment for everyone.

I am Diana Torres. I come from a Mexican family & I have always been someone who pushes myself & others forward. I come from a big family & it’s been something that has helped me become the person I am today. I am someone most people can count on. I aspire to be someone who gets their creativeness into the world & be able to embrace my sense of humor to others.

My name is Nicole Lesniak. Growing up culturally, I’ve always had a different perspective on things. I grew up in a different country for a time, so I have seen people treated differently, but have also seen how culture can greatly effect someone’s viewpoint and actions. This has taught me to always keep an open mind toward others and not be quick to judge. I think judgement based on opinion is something we as people tend to do, but I try to always hear others out and give them a chance before I make assumptions. I think everyone deserves to be able to have a conversation with someone else. I participate in the polish club. I am not an officer because I didn’t have the time to be able to take on the position I do help out with the events. I also volunteer in the ministry center with setting up, participating and cleaning up after events. This also includes singing at Sunday masses with the choir. My goal in life is to accomplish my dream and be able to help others. I have always wanted to work in healthcare for as long as I can remember but just recently I have found a calling for a job with that exact purpose. Going into nursing I want to get a specialty in pediatric oncology meaning working with kids that have cancer. I strive toward this goal because no matter how hard it will be, being there for these kids will be the best reward. Seeing them fight through everyday will give me strength to keep going.

I am Nicolo Vitale. I am a first generation American with Sicilian roots from Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I am extremely proud of where I come from and where I am today. My Italian background has exposed me to some of my passions, such as food and sports. I thank my parents and their Italian restaurant for instilling my love for cooking and trying new foods. My father introduced me to soccer and competition at a very young age as well. Soccer always came first, but it also sparked my interest in a variety of other sports. I am a proud Juventus F.C., GreenBay Packer, & Milwaukee Bucks fan. I am also a huge supporter of Italian and U.S. national teams. At Dominican University, I am grateful to be studying two areas that have have had a huge impact on my life, business & the Italian culture. Additionally, I am strengthening my passion for soccer as captain of the Dominican University Men’s Soccer program. The student-athlete environment has introduced me to a lot of life lessons that will be applicable to my future. I aspire to have good health, a family, financial stability, and the opportunity to travel the world.

I am Denis Soldo. I come from a Croatian family and Croatian is my first language. Most of my childhood was spent in Croatia and I didn't learn English until the first and mainly second grade. I started playing soccer, tennis, and basketball. I liked soccer most so that is the sport that I began to focus growing my skills in. In high school I started taking an interest in finance and investing and that's why I'm majoring in Finance right now. I aspire to be a financial advisor or consultant. What makes me unique is my strong energy and that I'm easy to get a long with. I always try to keep a good attitude with whoever is around me and I love to make people happy and laugh. I have a fitness page on Instagram geared towards spreading knowledge about lifting, soccer, and track. I play for the men's varsity soccer team and I am a part of the Brennan School of Business Investment Club. I would like to either be a financial advisor or own my own business when I graduate college. Another big goal of mine is to have have a healthy and happy family of my own because that is my main goal in life.

I am Shaylin Thurston. I am a double major in fashion design and fashion merchandising with a minor in business administration. What makes me a unique person at Dominican University is that I have a creative aura. I like to put my best foot forward and keep a positive attitude. I embrace my kind energy and give as much of it to others. I am a member of the fashion club and I have been involved since freshman year. I am an aspiring fashion designer and I hope to empower women of every ethnicity, size, and shape through my designs. I love to inspire not just women but others about finding beauty within their selves.

My name is George Stanton. I am from Detroit, MI and came to DU being recruited to play soccer. Well, that didn’t last long as I started to develop a problem that ruined my playing career. So, I started getting really serious about magic which is something that I have done off and on as a hobby since about the 6th grade. Presently, I am a working professional as I travel performing at various private events and other gigs. I have a team of people that also help me and I am hoping to have a successful career being a magician. I think one major thing that makes me unique at DU is that I am a magician. You don’t really meet a lot of those and people are always surprised to find out that that’s what I do. I am apart of The Village and Black Student Union at Dominican University.
My aspiration in life is to have a successful career in what I am passionate about (magic), a career that will give me the flexibility to live the type of lifestyle that I want to have. But I don’t want to JUST be a magician, I want to use the skills that I have as a magician to do something bigger and try to have an impact on people and help various communities such as my own (Detroit) and Chicago. I’m still very young but I believe that I, along with my team, are on the right track in accomplishing just that. Please follow my Instagram , thank you!!

My name is Spencer Hanford and I am a Senior, majoring in Finance. I was born and raised in Aurora, Illinois. I have my two parents and three younger siblings. My family is the reason I’m so motivated to continue to seek out my goals. Both my parents graduated college and everything I do, I do to make them proud. I am the oldest of my siblings and I always try to set the best example for them.

Life has many things in store and I want my siblings to appreciate their opportunities for education and to learn all they can from those around them.

I would say the thing that makes me a unique person here at Dominican is that I am constantly wanting to help other people achieve their goals and make their life journey the best it can be, before focusing on my own. After graduation I have decided to go straight into graduate school and either work towards an MBA or MSA. With either of those degrees, I aspire to be a financial manager or CPA.

04/03/2019

My name is Joselyn Urbina-Miranda. I am 20 years old, and not only am I the second oldest out of my three siblings, but also of my entire immediate family. I am the first one in my family with the opportunity to attend college. I am currently majoring in psychology with a minor in Spanish, and I hope to pursue a career as an occupational therapist. My parents have always encouraged me to excel in school, and because they were so against me burying myself in loans, they have selflessly offered to help me pay for my tuition. Even though I work my butt off in school, I wouldn’t have this opportunity without them. I want to give a huge shoutout to them for being my supporters and always believing in me. My biggest aspirations in life are to always become a better version of myself and to make my parents proud of me.

04/01/2019

My name is Elizabeth Cortez. I am 20 years old and the second oldest from my 3 sisters and the second one out of my family to attend Dominican University. I commute over an hour to school and work over 30 hours a week during the school year and over 40 in the summer in order to be able to pay all my tuition and expenses on my own. I am majoring in psychology and minoring in Spanish. Despite the many challenges and obstacles that life throws my way constantly, I am determined to become the best version of myself for myself. Whenever I feel something is wrong or I feel very passionate about something, I will speak up and use my voice, no matter what. My aspirations are to become an occupational therapist in the future and to become someone my parents are proud of. I hope to be able to give back and provide for others and myself.

I am Heaven Lozano. I was born and raised in a big Hispanic house hold on the south side of Chicago. We bounced around from house to house until I was 10. I am the first of all my family to go to college and graduate with a bachelors degree. I’ve work long hours as a preschool teacher to earn enough money to pay off my college tuition on my own. My biggest goal in life is to eventually open my own marketing firm. I want to be able to use my knowledge to help smaller companies improve their market standing to compete with bigger companies. I really want to be able to use all of my knowledge and artistic abilities to help out smaller companies.
