Growing up in downtown Detroit wasn't always easy for Domonique and her siblings. So when she was ready for high school her parents made the decision to move to Ann Arbor where they hoped she and her sisters would find it easier to focus on their education.

"I knew that if I had stayed in Detroit my life might have taken a bad turn as so many of the lives of girls I knew did. Both of my parents instilled in me the value of education and doing something with your life. I see it in how they live their lives," says Mayhawk.

She worked hard in high school knowing that her parents had adjusted their lives for her and her sisters' education, but didn't think that college was for her. But her creative talent drove her to try what she didn't think possible.

"I love graphic design because I can use my creativity to make flyers and posters and I really love making book jackets. I plan to finish here and then transfer to U-M," says Mayhawk.

The Foundation awarded Mayhawk a Redies Machine Tool Technology scholarship so that she could concentrate on her studies.

"Getting this scholarship makes me think that I can succeed in my career and it makes me want to try harder. I know that if I keep my G.P.A. up the College will see how serious I am. The scholarship definitely opened doors for me."
