Jasmin Thankachen was actively searching for a volunteer experience that incorporated women leaders and her South Asian culture when she joined SAWLF. Using her media skills she thought the best way to grow within the organization was to help create SAWLF's on-line magazine, The BIG iDEA!. As the editor of this magazine, Jasmin hopes to strengthen the voice of SAWLF within the South Asian community and beyond.

After having graduated from Brandeis University in Massachusetts, Jasmin joined NBC's one year fellowship, the Page Program. She later moved on to become a Production Assistant for Saturday Night Live and as the Project Director's Assistant for the non-profit division of NBC's TODAY Show. She has also worked as a Freelance Production Assistant with cable stations TNT and MTV. We welcome her to our organization.
