Woman Crush Wednesday: Dominique James


Where do I start? Dominique James is the type of girl -- errr, excuse me, woman -- you would want to have as your best friend. Lucky for me, she is one of my best friends. Her drive is inspiring, her humor always elicits more than a few giggles, and you can trust her with any secret, however big or small. Oh, and she can work wonders in the kitchen.

Let's back track a little and spend a some time talking about her drive. Dominique is 18 years old and has accomplished more than some twice her age. She managed to win the Golden Gloves boxing championship, perform with Yo-Yo Ma, secure a full ride to college, and hold down a job all the while putting together her first book for publication. To say the least, Dominique is doing it on all of us.
