Jackie Doming is a public relations major in the Creative Communications program at Red River College. Upon graduation, she hopes to pursue a career in the non-profit sector as a communications professional.
Doming is the founder of a local charity project called Threads of Hope, a brand of urban apparel and accessories raising funds for The Children’s Wish Foundation. She also spearheaded an inaugural affiliated event named Urban Rhapsody, a charity concert featuring local hip-hop performers and emcee Ace Burpee.
Her fundraising efforts have attracted attention from many local media outlets, including CBC Manitoba, CTV Winnipeg, 1031 Virgin Radio, Metro Winnipeg, The Metro (Canstar), La Liberté, and the Filipino Journal. Her project has raised over $14,000 to date with only more ambitious goals in the future.
Doming is an active contributor to The Filipino Journal, and has also written journalistic and promotional pieces for The Children’s Wish Foundation, Downtown Winnipeg BIZ and Winnipeg Free Press. This year, she will act as Co-Chair for the upcoming second annual Manitoba Filipino Business Council Awards Gala.
She has most recently worked as the Layout Editor at Red River College’s school newspaper The Projector, and a Specialist at Apple Retail. Prior to returning to school, Doming worked as a professional sales “Expert” at Apple, dealing with customer-to-business and business-to-business interactions. She has also completed some Business Administration training at the University of Winnipeg.
Jackie has received accolades for her creative work by the Manitoba Magazine Publishers Association (Best Magazine Layout), the Eric and Jack Wells Foundation (Honourable Mention, Journalism), the Citytv Scholarship Fund (Academic Scholarship) and the Creative Communications Media Awards (Best First-Year Campaign Proposal).
In her spare time, Jackie commits to freelance design work, crafting, and cooking (not to be confused with baking, which she is horrible at). If you would like to view more of her online work, visit her alternate website called The Downtown Dweller.
