Two years ago Dominika Kristinikova was a participant in CHI’s Academic Year Program in Washington. When the school year ended Dominika returned home to Bratislava, Slovakia. Dominika enjoyed her stay in the US so much, however, that when it was time to choose a college, she decided to come back to the US and attend Portland State University in Oregon. She is currently two months into her freshman year, and is already carving out her place on campus. In addition to making new friends she tried out for and made the volleyball team. She looks forward to getting an excellent education and having the time of her life over these next four years. Congratulations Dominika!
