My name is Mariia Domina, a 24-year-old Ukrainian. My ambitions brought me to China, where I, a linguist with a bachelor degree, decided to study China’s politics and economics as my major. And here I am, getting my second Master degree in the US, excited about PhD, a researcher who is trying to make a difference in the field of counterterrorism and Middle Eastern politics. However, first of all, I am a woman. And as an ambitious young woman, I am trying to prove my point in everything I do, in hopes for my voice to be heard. And it will be!
