Jasmine Q. Smith is a Mechanical Engineering major at Tuskegee University. As a kid, she loved science--but her passion for space specifically started when her mother took her to visit the California Science Center.
In college, Jasmine is a Air Force ROTC cadet and track and field hurdler. She is also founder of Tuskegee's chapter of the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space.
Jasmine was the only first-year undergrad accepted in the Brooke Owens Fellowship Program's inaugural class. As a Brooke Owens Fellow, she worked at the Mojave Air and Space Port. Her main project involved working with one of the Mojave Air and Space Port's tenants, the National Test Pilot School, to organize and host a week-long flight test camp for local high school students.
Jasmine is currently continuing her education as a sophomore at Tuskegee.
