Dominique Franceschi was born and raised in
Bogotá, Colombia. Unlike many others, she didn’t discover her passion and love
for performing arts until her senior year of high school. After high school, she
enrolled in MISI, one of the most complete four year musical theater
conservatory programs offered in Colombia. While the training program at MISI
was a wonderful opportunity, Dominique decided that her calling was to pursue a
degree in dance theatre.
In the fall of 2014 she left her family and everything
familiar, moved to California and began studying dance and completing her
general education at Cañada College.
Dominique has become an active member of the
Cañada College Community. She’s currently President of the ICE (International
Culture Exchange) club, a member of Glee Club, the Drama Club and the Journalism
Club. Dominique also enjoys volunteering for the Student Senate, which she is
planning to join for the summer 2015 term.
Her hard work and dedication has earned her the
Global Beca Foundation scholarship in her first semester, and the SMCCC
Foundation Scholarship and the CSEA Chapter 33 Scholarship for the 2015-2016
In April 2015, she auditioned for the
prestigious program, AMDA, (The American Music and Dramatic Academy), located
in Los Angeles.
After an extensive admissions and audition process,
Dominique was accepted into the program and will be transferring to the
conservatory in fall of 2016.
College is very proud of Dominique’s hard work and perseverance and the faculty
wishes her great success in her future and studies at AMDA.
