As an AmeriCorps VISTA, Jasmine is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty within her community by continuing the collaborative partnership between Stanford and the Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula. She grew up in Redwood City and received her bachelor’s degree in English literature from San Francisco State University. She became more involved with her school by engaging in academic discussions that strengthened her skills in empathy and communication with people of diverse backgrounds. She brings these skills to both of her sites to help her achieve her goal as an AmeriCorps VISTA.
Jasmine enjoys venturing into the city and small towns to explore, but also getting away and going to the beach. She takes delight in reading and talking about books.
