“When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to
realize his dream.”
Mahkai Dominique is an artist from Washington, D.C. who’s been involved in the arts her entire life, but she knew acting was it. While attending the notable high school, Duke Ellington School of the Arts Mahkai gained a better sense of self, which inspired her to really get to the root of what kind of actor and artist she wanted to be. She knew that she wanted to travel the world telling stories, while of course speaking from an honest and truthful place and Mason Gross was the right choice for her. During her junior year she trained in London, England and had the opportunity to learn about their culture, which confirmed her wants and desires to tell stories about POC all over the world.
