Dinka Hadzic

Executive Director

Dinka Hadzic is the Executive Director for the Ignite A Dream Foundation. Throughout the course of her life, Dinka has been passionately involved in numerous volunteering opportunities, primarily working with underprivileged and at-risk children. Her most recent volunteering experience has been with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate). At CASA, Dinka will be a special court-appointed advocate for children that have been taken away from their homes and put in foster care. Working with Ignite A Dream, Dinka hopes to continue impacting young children’s lives in a positive way.

Dinka brings the wealth of knowledge to Ignite A Dream as a former student-athlete. She attended the University of Washington on a full tennis scholarship. During her years there, Dinka gained valuable experience as an athlete and a mentor. Prior to joining the Huskies, Dinka was a member of the Croatian (her native country) national tennis team. While in Croatia, Dinka earned a very respectable international ranking. She was heavily recruited as a top junior and in the end, she chose Washington to showcase her talent. Throughout her tennis career, she learned the importance of athletics, role models and strong leadership. Dinka hopes to instill these same traits in the children she will be working with. With her love, passion and dedication, Dinka hopes to ignite children’s dreams and give them hope for a better future.
