Jasmine Lee

Profile

Jasmine is a rising senior at Brown University (studying both International Relations and Economics) with strong interests in communications, media production, music, and blogging.

She was awarded a Summer 2011 UTRA and is currently working to add to the 'Follow the Things' conversation that Jeff Bauer started in the winter. 'Follow the Things' tracks the everyday objects that we often take for granted (groceries, clothing, batteries, etc.) from production to consumption to bring to light the human connections that exist along the way. Jasmine's work will be building off of a Summer 2010 UTRA following raw, liquid, and powdered milk.
