Raised in the Middle East by Eastern European parents, Dominica Drazal was surrounded by rich cultural, socio-economic and religious diversity. Travels throughout her childhood stimulated a fascination for cultures, languages and geopolitics. While she fumbled with accidental arrogance, her parents patiently encouraged her to be humble and open-minded. She has worked in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas in diverse roles (investments, micro-finance, marketing, and business development) and currently is freelancing. Fluent in five languages, Dominica completed a degree in Marketing and History, a Masters in International Affairs from Fletcher (Tufts), and is currently studying digital marketing with Duke University. She is fascinated by the dynamism, controversy and free spirit found in France where she now lives with her son and husband.
