Degree with Hopes of Uplifting Underprivileged Adolescents
Yasmin Damblu '19 is the kind of student that never
lets anything block her pathway to success. Growing up in East New
York, Brooklyn, where she lived in public housing with her two older
brothers, twin sister, and single mother, wasn't easy. The
neighborhood was tough, money was tight, and the dream of earning a
bachelor's degree seemed elusive. But that changed when Damblu was
accepted to John Jay College, and received a postcard about the
College's new Accelerate, Complete, and Engage (ACE) program.
