When I was a child, I dreamed of going to the moon. Today, I am building a rocket.
I am stardust and steps taken.
I have the honour of being named after three great women of the 20th century. Their light, strength, and kindness continue to guide my life.
My name is Aniana María Domínguez Martínez, a Latina with a long name and last names that harbour the love for my ancestors. I am Dominican, and I am deeply proud of it. I am a writer, communication specialist, and Spanish editor.
As a little girl, I sat down every afternoon to write. I do not remember exactly what I wrote, but I remember that it made me feel happy, free, and connected to something bigger than myself.
At the age of 18, I bought my first plane ticket and travelled to Mexico with a suitcase full of dreams, leaving my heart in the Dominican Republic. That trip changed my life. I confirmed that I am part of something bigger, so big that my life won't be enough to completely know it. But I'll always have books and movies to take advantage of the fleeting life.
I love working with people who find joy in the little things.
Since 2011, I have studied and lived in Mexico, Spain, Chile, the United States, Canada, and my country: the Dominican Republic. I have learned and unlearned in every place that I have lived, becoming more human in every mile I travel.
I proudly hold a degree in Marketing and Communication from the Monterrey Institute of Technology in Mexico, and a master's degree in Creative Writing from the University of Salamanca in Spain. Nowadays, I am in Vancouver as part of SFU's 2022 Master of Publishing cohort.
I have worked as a freelancer and a full-time employee for various companies, including magazines, press, telecommunications, construction, and education. My goal is to generate a positive impact wherever I go and leave a mark that is worth looking at.
