Domonique Thomas

Fun fact I’m enjoying finding my footing; I thank the city of Schenectady for the
spaces, the opportunities, and the people. My intention is to enhance, leaving all that I come in contact with in better conditions. Although one person can make a difference I strongly stand firm on “Teamwork makes the dream work” With this being said I am Domonique Thomas, I am here to pour into our community as
it has so lovingly poured into me. I am currently involved with a Youth organization MDAM MSAM INC where I instruct creative outlets. I also paint, create and plant seeds metaphorically and physically, I do enjoy gardening!
Joining the MOC board is a bold step I consciously chose to take with knowing I’m in the right place at the right time. I’m excited to witness and be a part of our community’s new chapter.
