Editor’s Note: This is the story of a graduate of the 2015 Èxito! Latino Cancer Research Leadership Training program. Apply now for 2016.
Taking a cue from her father who worked hard and still made time to spend with his family, Jasmin already applies those same values to her own career and personal life. Her hard work shows: she’s the first from her family to get college degrees, and she’s already developed a great knack for improving research methods.
Throughout life, Jasmin has made a difference in her community by volunteering in various community organizations; this helped her realize how a public health approach could make a greater impact.
Jasmin received her bachelor’s in Health from Prairie View A&M University and her masters in Public Health from Texas A&M University; she is the first in her family to do this.
“[I] really enjoyed the program, it opened my eyes to other cancer research interests. [I] got informed about applying, funding and getting through a doctoral program,” said Jasmin.
