Jasmine McClam, 2019 Truman Finalist

Jasmine McClam Jasmine McClam is a rising senior, international studies and Spanish double major at Spelman College from Missouri City, Texas. A lead facilitator at a Spanish after-school program in two elementary schools in Atlanta, Georgia, McClam has volunteered over a hundred hours teaching Spanish to youth ages 6-10.

While studying at Spelman, McClam has traveled to seven Spanish-speaking countries and has conducted research on how Afro-Uruguayan women mobilize politically. She is also a campus ambassador, a Peer Assistant Leader (PAL), serves as the Co-Communications Chair for Spelman’s Chapter of UNICEF, and has interned for political campaigns and non-profit organizations in Atlanta and in her hometown of Missouri City.

After graduating from Spelman, McClam plans to pursue a master’s degree in public policy in order to study how past policies have positively and negatively impacted our public school system and develop and implement strategies that provide vulnerable communities better education. After graduate school, she aspires to become a Texas legislator, drafting policy to improve public education and to be a voice for culturally diverse communities across the state.
