She/her | Art and Music Committee 

Jasmine Holt is an active advocate for many issues that face her community. She's half Korean and is a U.S. citizen who spent most of her childhood in Emmaus, Pennsylvania. Being involved in multiple school activities and causes gives her a sense of purpose and belonging in the Minnesotan community, which was extremely hard to do when she moved to the state in her teen years. She enjoys artistic activities such as music and art, which she implements in her daily life to help connect with different people across the state.
