Excellence above all else

Jasmine's the name. I'm kind of a big deal and super funny.

My first play was in Nigeria. It was Alice in Wonderland, and I remember having a blast, but I wasn’t actually an “actor” as a kid. I just learned to adapt to different situations because we moved around so much. My mom has an English accent, so we always referred to the trunk as the “boot.” And then, suddenly, we moved to Georgia and I would say things like “open the boot” with a bit of an accent, and I quickly realized I had to adapt; that kind of thing will get you beat up! Once I developed a sense of my identity, it became fun to play around with those cultural differences.”
