There are bumps in the road for students when it comes to getting accustomed to being at a university, but Georgia Southern University freshman Jasmine Brown has hit the ground running and hasn’t looked back.
The 19-year-old Marietta, Ga., native is a double major in Spanish and child and family development and is involved in organizations including the Minority Advisement Program and the NAACP.
Brown insists she loves the opportunities that GSU has provided her to get to know more of the people that attend the university.
“I love the fact that although there are more than 20,000 people that attend this school, you still have the chance to meet new people and make a lot of friends,” she said.
Brown’s proficiency in the Spanish language has allowed her to be a tutor at GSU and also has brought about job opportunities.
“One of my biggest accomplishments is being considered for a job offer in Costa Rica. They extended the job offer to me last month, and I was honored,” she said. “I’m just a freshman in college. I don’t have my degree yet, and there are many people with degrees who could have been offered the job, but they chose me.”
Although Brown loves the Spanish language, her dream job is to help out others.
“I would like to be a consultant for nonprofit organizations who are trying to get rid of sex trafficking in Atlanta,” she said.
