Jazmin has participated in the following HPAC programs:
Shakespeare Ensemble, Storefront Ensemble, Mighty Quills, Community Service Team
Favorite program and why?
My favorite opportunity is interning at HPAC [for Summer Smarts]. I like to work with children and this is a great learning experience. I also get to apply my skills in a new way.
What are you most proud of?
I’m proud of having improved my studies. I was motivated to do better when I saw my grades going down a little. I started looking over my classwork. Doing practice problems helped as well.
Who is your role model?
My mom is my role model. She is able to take care of people and to put others before herself.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could have 3 things, what would those things be?
1. An unlimited supply of food 2. fresh water, and 3. a tent with a blanket inside.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place in the world is school. All my friends are there. It’s fun, but the work is not.
What was your favorite class? Your hardest?
My hardest class was trigonometry. To do better in that class I did a lot of math problems and got tutoring.
What is your favorite thing about being an HPAC Scholar?
I love that HPAC helps the community. They see what the community needs and then do what is necessary to fix it.
What are you most excited for?
I’m excited to get a job. That’s because I know that I will choose to do something that I like, and it won’t feel like work.
Tell me something that is unique about you.
I am very organized with work and in the public in general. But at home, I’m messy.
If you could get in contact with any person, dead or alive, who would it be and what would you say?
I would talk to Thomas Jefferson because when he was president everything was different. I would ask him how things have changed.
What advice would you give your parents?
I would tell them not to get angry. Anger gets in the way of decision making.
