Jasmina is a third-year Software Engineering student studying at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). She is also a University Innovation Fellow in the Engineering Stream who is passionate about bringing change to student's learning. During her time at university, Jasmina has been involved in a number of events and initiatives around campus such as having a part time job at the UTS Data Arena and participating in external events such as the Microsoft Women Tech Charge. 

Jasmina is currently an Events Director for Engineers Without Borders - UTS Chapter which is a student society that encourages students to create change through Humanitarian Engineering. As an Events Director, her goal is to create events such as Design Corner; an inter-university sustainability hackathon and the Humanitarian Engineering Conference in order to bring awareness to students about how engineers can make a postive contribution to the greater society. She also helped organise numerous School Outreach Programs with EWB such as Regioneering; a 5-day camp where engineering students volunteer their time and teach engineering modules to students in disadvantaged areas around New South Wales. This stems from her passion to empower and faciliate a new generation of passionate young students to realise their potential in the field of engineering. Jasmina has recently been elected as President for Engineers Without Borders - UTS Chapter in 2020, hoping to continue to carry out her passion to further promote humanitarian engineering. 

Additionally, Jasmina also works with Code Like a Girl; a social enteprise providing girls and women new innovative ways of learning in regard to the computer science industry. There, she is a workshop facilitator teaching young primary school students how to code in the school holidays. This stems from her aspiration to bring out gender diversity in the workplace, and providing opportunities for students to undertake design thinking, technical skill development, and collaboration with their peers. Jasmina also volunteers with the UTS Women in Engineering and IT (WiEIT) to encourage females to engage in STEM careers as it brings about a diversity of ideas and further ensures a balanced approach to confront challenges in the workforce. This ultimately enhances the experience for women to come together and sought out a solution that would improve the quality of life for individuals in society.

She hopes to continue to be an advocate for helping others through humanitarian engineering practices as well as encourage more females to have a career in the STEM Industry by taking the initiative to develop new skills and expanding the work of engineers through collaboration.
