Popsugar featured Dominique Fishback in "On Our Radar: Dominique Fishback Has Found Her Voice and Is Here to Advocate For Her Space"

As for why she didn't cry, even Fishback is still surprised. "I don't know how I didn't cry," she said incredulously. "I fought it with everything in me and I can't say why it happened or why it didn't happen. I think I just remember Mama Akua, and if there's any way that I can honor her when she said that she didn't cry, then suck it in," she told me. The idea of why someone does or does not cry reminded Fishback of her time at Pace University, where in 2013 she got a degree in theater. "I remember learning in school that the most interesting aspect of watching a film is when people fight the tears, right?

And so I just really held it for dear life."
