Born and raised in the American South, Jasmín has come to call Norcross, Georgia home, a place where a vibrant immigrant community exists within the homogeneity of the greater state. They graduated from Stanford University in the spring of 2018 with degrees in Chicano/a-Latino/a Studies and Psychology. Jasmín's passion for immigrant rights and Latinx culture has driven them to intern at immigration non-profit organizations, study abroad in Santiago, Chile, learn Portuguese, and explore greater Latin America physically, academically, and creatively. Through the Latin American Studies program, they hope to expand their understanding of the immigration detention center industrial complex as well as the interaction between race, gender, class and immigration policies. In the future, Jasmín plans to pursue a career in law in an effort to democratize access to legal assistance. In their free time, they enjoy storytelling, writing and taking photographs.
