Jasmine Rivera is a Mexican-American woman born and raised in Southern California, U.S.A. She holds a degree in English Literature with a minor in Spanish from San Francisco State University. She is currently a graduate student at St. Bonaventure University studying sports journalism. A lover of words and what they can mean by themselves, and all strung together, she writes about stories she would love to read, and hopes others will too. She dreams of creating stories in the future, whether it is in sports or elsewhere, and helping bring more of them into the world to tackle social issues, stir emotions, and all of the nuances in between. She is also bilingual, hopes to travel more, and make the world a little more compassionate through her words in both languages.
