Step by Step
Jasmine Elmore describes her life as a stairway, and RU has become one of her chosen steps. The choice has led to a multitude of opportunities, including an Outstanding Student Award and membership in such organizations as the Pre-Dental Association. She’s also an Honors student.
“The honors community is a special place because the students in it have no comprehension of the word ‘full.’ Our favorite accomplishment is the next accomplishment, so we are never satisfied with where we stand today.”
Beyond RU, Jasmine volunteers as a youth basketball coach. She’s also in the process of writing a children’s book about the importance of dental health.
Where will she go next? She plans to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. After that, she hopes to open a free nutrition wellness and dental clinic for single mothers and their children.
“I have been inspired by my professors and peers to continue the pursuit of my dreams. The enthusiasm of these people for my personal triumphs is the reason my next steps up the stairway will be short strides.”
