UPDATE: Hurry Up and WAIT! (Written By AmbassadorNique)

Happy Black History Month! We only get 28 days to celebrate so lets make the best of it!

Something I think is cool that you may have noticed is my daily dedication to black history. Each day I will try to celebrate blackness by sharing a photo of someone that has inspired me to be greater.  

As I wait for March to come I look forward to hearing back from the University of Washington’s iSchool program. Accepted or not there are many goals that I would like to achieve in the near future. Since my grad app is now finished I’ve moved on to applying for new jobs. I would like a role that will allow me to receive hands on IT experience that will help me succeed in any Information Management program. 

Along with job hunting I am putting the final touches on my PhotoVoice Eagles With Camera’s project and planning the Meet The Artist Display this month as well. Stay tuned for details.

Speaking of the kids, D and I will help fundraise $650 to help send a student from Northgate Elementary to Washington DC this May! If you wan’t to help us leave our names with a donations here. https://squareup.com/market/northgate-elementary-school 

Speaking of Photo’s! I hope to update my seasonal Gallery in my living room and plan on getting one of my photo’s printed on a canvas painting.

Before I forget.. February 18th! 4-6pm at UW we will be screening “The House I Live In” I am really excited to be screening this doc. Check out the trailer here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0atL1HSwi8 

As far as AmbassadorNique Productions I would like to get Patches made to make more shirts and beanie’s. If anyone has leads let me know!

I hope to also make time for reading and writing. I am slowly reading the book Of Men We Reaped and Sonia Sotomayor’s – My Beloved Country is next.

I also want to make Digital Stories from the pictures I took this past fall even though my hard drive recently crashed and I lost most of them because I didn’t back it up! BACK UP YOUR STUFF PEOPLE! In more than one place! 

There is much work to be done and time continues to move forward. Keep your back to the wind, your head high, your eyes focused and your shoes tied. Live long and prosper!

PhotoVoice Eagles With Cameras: “Project on Identity” Who Are We? Session Six

PhotoVoice Eagles With Cameras: “Project on Identity” Who Are We?

Session Six 

In our very last classroom session of Photovoice students had a chance to work on their collages and share their final thoughts about the project and their personal identities. The students also took a survey using their iPads and survey monkey. I thanked them for their time and effort as this has been a project I’ve enjoyed very much. Stay tuned as there are many future plans in the works. 

Stay tuned!

What’s In A Name?

First of all happy new year everyone! What a year 2013 was and here’s to making 2014 even better. After returning from my celebration I looked myself in the mirror and the first thing that came to mind was my name. As I started to think about names in general of other people and places, I pondered, what’s in a name? How much does a name say about our identity about who we are?

My name is Domonique. Commonly, the second “o” is usually spelled with an “i” or it’s spelled like Dominic(k) etc. My parents, named me after the Hall of Fame Atlanta Hawks forward Dominique Wilkins. They decided to use two o’s because I was born in Japan and Domo was short for Domo Arigato, a gesture meant for the doctors whom took great care of me in my 6 month stay. Today, my name connects me Japan and Japanese cultures which I credit with making me a global citizen. Although the jokes of domino’s pizza, the constant misspelling and mispronouncing got very old at a young age, I love my name and wouldn’t change it for the world.

AmbassadorNique, my brand, my remix, my alter ego. The AmbassadorNique Productions brand revolves around the thought that everyone is a global citizen. We cannot and will not divide ourselves based on skin color, social-economic background, location, sexual orientation, body type or ability. First we are human beings. We are global ambassador’s and sky is not the limit. We strive to provide resources and opportunities to help connect our thoughts and dreams with reality. Without the proper resources our goals become impossible obstacles. We are all Ambassador’s.

My name is Domonique Meeks and I am a global Ambassador.
