Jazmen was selected as one of The Outreach Program’s outstanding graduates because of her hard work at the Highline Achieve Program. She has completed more college level classes than any other Highline Achieve student and completed a paid internship at Camelot Elementary with students with special needs.
She was a valuable member of the team there and always has a positive attitude. Even when things are difficult, she keeps trying.
“I have a very positive outlook on life,” Jazmen said. “Looking at what I’ve accomplished, despite the odds, one of my goals is to serve as an example and mentor for children and help them to realize that with enough determination they can become the best person they can be.”
“Jazmen has good leadership skills and is kind to peers and staff,” said Angela Pahlow, a Special Education teacher at TOP. “She will go far!”
After graduation, Jazmen plans to pursue an associate's degree from Highline College to become a paraeducator.
“I’m extremely excited and looking forward to the next chapter of my life,” Jazmen said.
