Dominica Y. Wambold
International Relations & Media
Dominica Y. Wambold is a recent college graduate whose professional experience spans international cooperation, tech startups, and some of the most innovative millennial-facing media of the 21st century.
The London-born, New York-raised daughter of a Persian father and a British mother, Dominica Wambold is no stranger to international relations. She majored in the topic at Stanford University and her first official role was in the Republic of Kosovo, where she was the first undergraduate intern in the Office of the Prime Minister. Dominica actively worked to create more jobs and eliminate discriminatory actions against ethnic groups. Dominica later spent a summer interning for the United Nations Office for Project Services, working on UNOP’s outreach, partnerships, and strategies regarding national security.
Since taking on her first tutor/teaching assistant role back in 2007, Dominica has always been passionate about education and professional opportunities. However, her exposure to international development increased this interest tenfold. A former contributing writer for Stanford Daily, Dominica has written front-page content about the changing face of education. She was also the co-president of the Stanford Chapter of Ellevate Network, a pre-professional society for women.
One of the most fulfilling ways that Dominica Wambold has connected with students is through chess. For four years she was an assistant teacher for the Spence Chess Program, helping experts conduct weekly chess lessons for Lower School students. Dominica also founded the Upper School Chess Club to introduce chess to older students.
Dominica is interested in film and the way that it can shine light on existing issues. She provided research and scripting for PBS special “The High School Drop-Out Crisis” and later worked on a startup documentary/talk-show series aimed at a millennial audience, “Raising McCain.” The series received critical acclaim for its laser-sharp focus on modern culture. Dominica also attended New York Film Academy in 2012 and has created music videos and photography projects for fun.
Thanks to an active family history in theatre, Dominica cares about supporting new talent and enabling continued production of the classics. Her parents are involved with the Theatre for New Audience and Dominica attends the theatre’s events faithfully.
Previously, Dominica was a Marketing and Operations Associate overseeing digital marketing and user acquisitions for Humin, an exciting new phone app that aims to “remember” iPhone contacts in a more natural way. She is now working in management consulting as business analyst.
In her spare time Dominica does taekwondo, goes scuba diving, and rides horses on her family farm.
