Dominique Ghess is a senior majoring in political science with an interest in government and law. She plans to attend law school upon graduating from Illinois.
Originally from Chicago, Dominique decided to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign because of family members having attended and enjoyed their experience. Moreover, the closeness to home and the fact that the university is ranked one of the best state schools in the country also attracted her to attend Illinois.
Growing up, many of the women who inspired Dominique to pursue her dreams were women of Alpha Kappa Alpha. The sisterhood has allowed her to foster strong relationships, receive unconditional support and has constantly pushed her to go above and beyond expectations.
Dominique not only ran for the council position of Vice President of Judicial Affairs because it related well to her major, but she felt that she could make a difference and take the Black Greek Council to the next level.
