Jasmine Jarman knows that one day she will either be taking care of children or educating them. She knows because she has a strong passion for nurturing their minds. Now that she is off to college in August she doesn’t know what she’ll major in. However, sales she knows it’s going to have the focus on children.
With a 3.88 GPA and finishing 9th overall in her senior class of 196 students at John Marshall High School, dosage Jarman says her last year of high school was hard since she had a lot of distractions throughout the year, viagra but finishing in the top ten pleased her.
During her senior year, Jarman was the vice president of the National Honor Society (NHS) where she was also a member for three years. She says the experience of being in NHS was one that made her a leader. “When you are in the National Honor Society, you have a lot of community service, you have to be there on hand, you have to have time management and be responsible,” Jarman said. “With all that community service and everything, it just made me feel like if I can help one person and make them smile. I will be able to help a lot of people and make a lot of people smile. It makes me want to do more.”
With that initiative and optimistic, but realistic spirit, Jarman took part in other in- school and after-school activities that required leadership. She has been a member of the Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), Student Council Association vice president (SCA, 11th grade), manager of the boy’s soccer team, volunteer tutor, and a high school cheerleader for four years.
“As a leader, Jasmine worked diligently to fulfill her responsibilities. She has eagerly participated in and/or supported many organizations and programs sponsored by the school, while easily maintaining herself as a stellar student,” Glenn Starnes II, assistant principal, said.
While in the NHS, Jarman says it also taught her to appreciate the small gifts that you can give to people. While doing a toy drive for children during Christmas, she said it made her happy to see the joy a simple toy could give to a kid who has very little. “Just seeing all the presents and seeing how their eyes lit up…it made me feel good about myself,” Jarman said
Though she is very active in school, Jarman still finds time to volunteer within those organizations and tutor children. As a tutor, she teaches young students and helps them with their homework in all core subjects. This is where Jarman gets the most happiness, when working closely with children.
She started tutoring during summer camp, around the age of 12, and has continued to do so as the years went on. “It makes my bond with kids even stronger. I want to be a teacher but I also want to be a pediatrician, because anything that has to do with kids I love,” Jarman said. “It’s just something about them that’s better, and I guess that’s because they are still in the learning process.”
Jarman will be attending South Carolina State University in the fall but is still unsure what she will major in. Currently she is deciding between early childhood education and pre-med. With that foundation, she would like to become either a teacher or pediatrician.
“I want to do both. I don’t want to be just one. I want to be both,” she said. Jarman says her father always told her you have to have a backup plan, so for now she’s sticking with both as future careers.
