Advisor: Jasmine Rainey
Jasmine Rainey is a native of Denver, Colorado. She graduated from George Washington High School and earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Technical Communication from Colorado State University with Latin honors Summa Cum Laude. Jasmine’s background as a first generation student growing up in a underserved community motivated her to want to make a difference in the lives of students with similar upbringings. She has worked in college access over the last six years and strives to motivate and empower students to accomplish their goals while overcoming obstacles. Jasmine became the first Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) Alumna to work for DSF, and she feels her story has come full circle with her now working as the DSF Lead College Advisor at her alma mater, George Washington High School. In her free time, Jasmine enjoys writing, singing, playing the piano and almost anything related to the arts.
