The Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship
Jasmine N. White
2008 Graduate Pickering Fellow Jasmine White sought a career that would allow her to link a love of public service with her background in international relations. The Foreign Service provided Jasmine uniquely constructed opportunity to do just that. She is able to represent the United States while building bridges with people and communities around the world.
The Pickering Fellowship has aided Jasmine in gaining the confidence necessary to enter into such an esteemed profession. She has been afforded so many wonderful opportunities. The summer internships, mentorship by Senior Foreign Service officials, as well as the tremendous amount of attention paid to her professional development, both in life and in the Department of State, is unrivaled. Jasmine is honored to have been chosen as a Fellow. Her cohort (GFAF 12) entered the Foreign Service in September 2010, fully prepared to take on the world—literally!
