Jasmine Harcum

Jasmine Harcum is majoring in WGS and Social Work and minoring in Psychology. Jasmine is also a member of the UNC Greensboro Expansion Chapter of Alpha Pi Omega, the nation’s oldest and largest Native American Sorority. Jasmine says that “WGS enhances my research into understanding and enhancing the experiences of LGBTQ and racially marginalized populations who struggle with mental health conditions and care.” Jasmine also uses WGS outside of the classroom, stating that “I channel WGS in the ways that I interact with folks in my day to day. I question what I may have previously thought was innate in me when it can potentially be harmful to others, and consider how much of my interactions and reactions are shaped by ignored and toxic social teachings.” She says that her favorite idea from WGS so far is that “we all are capable of change, because we are the change, and through learning, advocacy, outreach and listening to the voices of the oppressed, we can truly revolutionize the world to be safer and better than it is now.” She has been the elected Historian of the UNCG Queer Student Union for the 2016-2017 year. Jasmine was awarded the Sally and Alan Cone Course Scholarship for the 2015-2016 school year, and the Sally and Alan Cone Major Scholarship for the 2016-2017 year.
