Traveler Bio

Hello! My name is Jazmin, but I sometimes go by Jaz or Jazzy. I'm a public health major at Schreiner University, and I will be graduating very soon. Last January, I had the amazing opportunity to study in Geneva, Switzerland. While there, I ate lots of cheese and chocolate, went to the mountains, practiced my French, and rode many trains. 

In Switzerland, I learned about how different countries work together to help people in need of help. I studied ways to improve health, help the poor, and give people the things they need to survive, like food and water. I also did research on humanitarian work, which is work to help countries that can't help their own people. I really love helping others and want to make a difference. I also talk a lot and am great at telling stories, so I can't wait to share this journey with you!
