Jasmine is currently a part of the running start program in which she attends her local community college full-time taking 16-18 credit hours per semester. Jasmine is the captain of Belleville East’s racial harmony group and is very proactive in her community. She also sits on the wolf branch cultural diversity committee as the youth representative bringing young fresh ideas to the group of teachers, parents and administrators, who are all trying to make a more cohesive community. Jasmine was selected to be the captain and representative of her BESt summer pharmacy institute class and her school’s Gateway2Change student summits group because of her well known reliability and leadership skills. The Gateway2Change summits are composed of a combination of activities and discussion held between the high schools in the St. Louis Area to promote student activity in bettering their communities on their own. One example of the activities Gateway2Change is trying to give birth to is The Cultural Unity Project (C.U.P.). This is a venture created and led by Jasmine Adams and her cohort Hannah Teverbaugh. C.U.P is a diverse mentorship project that targets underprivileged communities. C.U.P target economically underprivileged schools by providing tutoring, talking and touching hearts. Jasmine sees and acknowledges the problems facing her community. Whether it is race or health, she feels compelled to find new innovative ways to change them. In her spare time she studies holistic medicine or plays basketball. Jasmine’s participation in the Barnes Jewish hospital, Express Scripts and St. Louis community college pharmacy institute (BESt) and her interest in healthily living has pushed her towards the pharmaceutical field. She plans to attend the St. Louis College of Pharmacy upon completion of high school. Entering college with her associates in science, Jasmine plans to continue bettering her community all through college.
