By Zoila Palma: Every month, the U.S. Embassy in Belize highlights outstanding Belizeans.
For the month of May, the U.S. Embassy is putting its alumni spotlight on Dominique Noralez.
Dominique is an alumnus of the Youth Ambassadors Program of 2012. She has done extensive advocacy work and recently founded the podcast Walasaha.
As a part of the Youth Ambassadors program, Dominique was able to travel to Washington and then completed a homestay in Tennessee.
The program allowed her to receive extensive advocacy training as well as the ability to network with other ambassadors from countries such as Trinidad and Ghana. Dominique voices how the experience was very eye-opening and was able to give her the confidence and tools she would need to succeed in the work she has done since then.
Since 2012, Dominique has visited around 15 countries for advocacy work and events related to environmental protection, youth development and sexual health.
The National Youth Council of Belize, The National Women’s Commission, the National AIDS Commission, Save the Seas Belize and the National Garifuna Council of Belize are just a few of the organizations that she has been involved with over the years.
Dominique says that she looks forward to doing similar work in the future and is even running for the regional representative position for the Caribbean and Americas in the Commonwealth Youth Council election of 2021.
In 2020, Dominique launched the podcast Walasaha.
As a first-year university student at University of the West Indies, Dominique wanted a way to pursue her academic and creative interests and was able to combine the two with the podcast Walasaha, which covers topics related to US and Caribbean politics, Belizean local and national politics as well as cultural subjects such art and music.
Dominique says that she is excited to continue her studies as she is determined to pursue a career in politics in order to help and serve fellow Belizeans especially those from disadvantaged communities.
