Jasmine Fleming

Jasmine Fleming is from Winfield, Alabama, and graduated from The University of North Alabama in May 2017 with a Bachelor degrees in Professional Writing/Spanish. While attending the University, she was selected as a semi-finalist in the prestigious Student Fulbright ETA.

She works at Hexagon Geospatial as a Marketing Support Specialist. Her long-term goal is to complete a graduate program in creative writing and pursue a career in this field. Jasmine was very active on and off campus. Her extracurricular activities and honors included Sigma Tau Delta, Foreign Language Department Study Abroad Scholarship, Honors Program Scholarship, Northwest Alabama Reading Aids Volunteer, English Club, Honors Program, Consultant for the Center for Writing Excellence, Art Club, Flor-Ala Writer and Editor, and Lights and Shadows Magazine Editor.

Jasmine believes that her experiences in the classroom and studying abroad helped develop her into the person she is today. Fleming wrote, “While studying abroad in Spain last summer, I had my first conversation outside the classroom with a native speaker when I met a man sitting outside of a museum. He asked me questions such as why I decided to study Spanish and what I most enjoyed about Spanish culture. When we parted ways, I felt proud that I was able to communicate with him. Without the dedicated instructors who helped me grow my abilities, I wouldn’t have traveled to Spain and met new people, and I wouldn’t have the increased confidence speaking a second language brings. I look forward to having an opportunity to help other students develop that same confidence in the future.” 

Jasmine’s passion for creative writing and Spanish is still strong. She looks forward to continuing to pursue her dreams of breaking down language barriers by educating others while positively influencing the community.

We’re excited about what the future holds for Jasmine and all of our COAS Alumni!
