  • Dominique’s Liberian heritage’s role in sparking her interest in hospitality
  • The diverse culinary influences that guide Dominique’s work
  • Living in China as a Black woman, and how China reminded Dominique of West Africa
  • Dominique’s perspectives on Liberia, its region, and Africa generally
  • George Weah, Liberia’s soccer star turned president
  • The return of the African Diaspora
  • Reading, listening, and watching recommendations from:
    • Dominique
