Quite an honor to address the Lincoln Law School of Sacramento 2018 Graduates and receive an honorary degree. I spoke about the legacy of Lincoln Law School serving unconventional law students and future lawyers, as Abe Lincoln was 175 years ago.

I also focused on my later mother Barbara J. McCarty, a 1983 Lincoln Law School graduate and her unconventional but successful journey. I know she would be smiling.

And congrats 2018 Valedictorian, Heather Nadine Temple!

Hi! My name is Jasmine, and I had the great opportunity to shadow Asm. McCarty yesterday for California Youth Connection (CYC)'s "Foster Youth Shadow Day."

I believe that I can draw from my experience as a former foster care youth to create #FosterPower and #FosterStability for the young people behind me. All young people need stable, love-filled lives, and I am grateful to learn more about the legislative process that can help make that a reality.

My name is Jasmine, and I'm taking over Asm. McCarty's social media for the day!

I am shadowing for the day as part of the California Youth Connection (CYC)'s "Foster Youth Job Shadow Day." I am participating in the program as a former foster youth because I believe I can use my voice for policy, legislative and practice change in the foster care system.
