Meet Jasmine Thomas, IGNITE's 22-23 Oklahoma City Fellow
Jasmine Thomas is IGNITE’s Oklahoma City Fellow. Jasmine is a proud graduate of North Carolina A&T State University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics. After being raised in a small town in central Texas, Jasmine had the opportunity to graduate high school in Seoul, South Korea through her family’s military service. Jasmine’s university decision was similarly fortuitous, as she earned a full academic scholarship that made her attendance at North Carolina A&T possible. Both of these experiences have ignited a passion in Jasmine to see lower income individuals’ lives changed through access to greater opportunities. Her time spent serving on a North Carolina Representative’s congressional campaign, advocating for reproductive justice as a Fight4HER organizer, and volunteering with the Prison Fellowship and the Oklahoma Department of Corrections has inspired Jasmine to fight for mass access to said opportunities and for improved quality of life for her community through legislative advocacy. And, Jasmine hopes that her time as an IGNITE Fellow will inspire young Oklahomans to do the same. For Oklahoma City inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
