At the age of 22, Dom or Dominique Myesha Carson’s journey from  silence has been very  rewarding. Hearing impaired as a child, but was destined  to partake in a  profession that would change her life forever. With the  help of her  mother, Monique Kelly, sister, Nashira Canady, a host of  relatives,  friends, colleagues, and her faith in God, Carson was able to  spread  her wings and soar immediately. Carson is a young woman who  truly has a  passion for journalism. Journalism fills her heart with so  much  gratification. The lifestyle of a journalist grabbed her attention  at  the age of eight and she strives to be superb in her future  profession.  Her work has been featured in Urbane Perspective Media+  Lifestyle,  Spotlight on Recovery magazine,  BooksNReview.com, Brooklyn Daily Eagle,   Brooklyn College Excelsior, Bay Currents, Brooklyntoday.info,  www.thecelebritycafe.com, www.rappersroom.com, www.singersroom.com, Amsterdam  News, and Education Update. Carson is a recent college  graduate from  Brooklyn College. Her majors were Journalism and Italian.  She is pursuing a master of science degree in  Media Studies  at Brooklyn College. The program allow students to be  informed about the usage of online media, marketing, programming,  critical media study, and research. And starting February 2013, she will be a music publicity consultant intern for former co-president of Atlantic Records, Ron Shapiro and media specialist, Patti Conte’s management, Plan a Media, LLC.
But outside of work and school, Dominique gives back to Public School 190.
