My name is Jasmine Cook. I am a sixteen year old girl who goes to Palisade high school, and through sharing my story I hope to spread the word about the importance of my mission.
It’s funny how you can trace huge moments in your life back to a small decision you made a year or two ago. The “small” decision I made a changed the path of my life. About a year ago, I asked the founder of a non-profit (Blythe Crow) to go to coffee. When I asked her to go to coffee I wasn’t planning on becoming a part of her non-profit. But about two weeks later I was fundraising for a trip to Mathare, Kenya. This trip showed me the many ways I could help the children and adults in Mathare.
