Jasmin has big goals. Like really big goals.
The biggest being her goal of becoming a practicing physician while still pursuing her dream of writing. She is currently a medical student at St. George’s University, so she spends most of her day in the cadaver lab or buried under books in the study hall (she hasn’t had a solid night of sleep in 8 months). Jasmin graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she studied medical journalism and biology.
Jasmin’s work in the reporting field has been recognized by both state and national organizations, including The Charlotte Observer and Kaiser Health News. She was awarded the North Carolina Medical Journalism Scholarship in 2014 by the North Carolina Medical Society and UNC for her passion in health reporting.
Though she is still learning, she hopes this blog will help other writers, pre-med hopefuls and students in general navigate their way through the college, medical school and the work (or real) world. She also hopes her funny life stories brings smiles to anyone reading the blog.
Notice: everything published on this blog are Jasmin’s thoughts and hers alone. They do not reflect the ideas or thoughts of any of the organizations she is/was a part of. Many of her posts also contain a lot of sarcasm. Please take her words with a grain of salt. Like a HUGE grain because sometimes she gets too into her work.

Other than writing, Jasmin loves to dance, though she hasn’t performed in a while (she has in the privacy of her room). She enjoys reading, dabbles in photography, is a Starbucks addict and likes to spend her Friday nights alone in her dorm room watching Netflix and eating pizza.
