Saint Lucian Entrepreneur and Environmental Advocate seeking solutions for the challenges of her generation.
This month, OECS YES In Action caught up with Jasmine Duncan, a 20 year old Saint Lucian business student whose passion for helping others has inspired the launch of two local companies with regional and global reach!
Jasmine Duncan is a 20 year old undergraduate student at the University of the West Indies pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Management Studies and Entrepreneurship.
Here is Jasmine in her own words:
I discovered my love for the environment from an early age when I came to the realization that we have one single planet and it was our duty to preserve it.
In 2018, I founded GEION Group – an award winning environmental sustainability company that focuses on environmental solutions. I also launched YE! Youth of Excellence, which is an award winning social enterprise that supports young persons who are having difficulties achieving their goals in any area – whether it be business, sports or academics – by offering them opportunities for growth.
I have been actively involved in many youth organizations. I am currently a Staff Sergeant of the Saint Lucia Cadet Corps, a One Young World Ambassador, a Resolution Fellow, a Global Peace Ambassador, a Queens Commonwealth Scholar and a World Economic Forum Global Shaper.
