I AM Dr. Badea!

I AM Dr. Badea! is the story of a girl who was resilient when people underestimated her. Dominique was active in sports and especially loved math and science, but people didn’t always encourage her at school or at work. Instead, she believed in herself and took the time to make sure other students felt supported too. The HBCU experience at Tuskegee was a wonderful chapter for Dominique, and today she loves her work as a field application scientist with important medical treatments.
