Reccomendations 



From: Megan Jane Eloise Krahn - project collaborator

“Dominika wakes up every morning with a burst of energy. She ia highly-motivated, ever-optimistic, creative and inspirational designer. Her strengths in design relate strongly to her incredible sense of empathy. This empathy gives her a strong understanding of the end user, as she always related the project and goals to how the user will experience and interact with it. She works intiuitively and with passion, allowing her to produce and create in an exploratory way with freedom. Dominika has one of the strongest work ethics, the most vibrant energy, and incredible generosity with her team mates in every design project.”
From: Lewis Greener - the facilitator of the sprint

“I worked with Dominika during ‘Holis’ interdisciplinary design summer school, over a challenging process - a ten-day design sprint in a rural location. She brought a positive attitude and eagerness to our team. Dominika was aware of others in the team at all times and would give space to everyone while volunteering to lead by example when discussions got quit. She helped with a playful + quick spirit in our ideation process and was open to feedback on ideas in a positive way. Dominika has a creative spirit that supports her to see ideas and problems from many different angles. The flexibility + support she gave our team members really helped to push us through the final stages!”
