My name is Jasmine and I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Marine and Coastal Systems at the University of Algarve in Faro, Portugal. I got my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry at the University of California San Diego, where I loved to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors. My main academic interests lie within life sciences, but I also love learning about history. As for recreation, I enjoy travelling, cooking, hiking and surfing.
While in high school, I tutored students in Pre-Calculus and Spanish. Later in my career, I had the opportunity to serve the San Diego community as a volunteer instructor for an organization bringing marine-focused ecology lessons to underserved areas. I got to assist with field trips and hands-on lessons, which was a great experience. I have always been passionate about teaching others and hope that somewhere along my career path, I get to work within the community to share knowledge in a fun and engaging manner.
