Pronouns | She, Her, Hers

Hi, my name is Yazmin. I am a sophomore this year, majoring in Forensic Psychology and minoring in Criminalistics. I am very involved on campus. I am a sister of Alpha Sigma Tau, the VP of Public Relations for the Panhellenic Council, a member of the MMA club, as well as I'm looking into getting involved in a few other organizations this semester. I also work in the MRO in Morgan. My favorite quote is  “If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got.” I am always pushing myself to do things out of my comfort zone to better myself and have new experiences.
