KU Student Portrait – Jasmine Moore
Ansley Reynolds
What's in Your Backpack, Jasmine Moore?

“My laptop with stickers on the keys,” said Jasmine Moore, a senior majoring in Information Technology from Olathe, Kan. “As an IT major, everything I do is on my laptop. My younger sister put stickers on it, and on days when coding is getting hard, I know I have a little one looking after me.”

IT has allowed Moore to work with computers while still having creative freedom and understanding all elements of business.

Moore is active on campus. During the 2018–2019 school year, she served as vice president and, in fall 2019, president of Gifted Empowered Motivated Sisters (G.E.M.S.). “It is an organization created for black women to connect and develop their identities for societal change. G.E.M.S. helped me think about what it really means to be a black woman existing in the world, especially in a male-heavy profession.”

Currently, she is involved in the Multicultural Business Scholars Program (MBSP) and the Koch Scholars Program. “I found Koch Scholars through MBSP, and it led me to having a full-time job offer before leaving KU.”

While Moore will be working as a business systems analyst after graduation, her long-term goal is to combine her passions of working with children and technology. “Eventually, I want to create my own program that will help children explore their areas of interest.”

As a scholarship recipient, Moore is grateful for the opportunity to attend KU, graduate on time and do what she loves while she is here. “I am able to focus on activities that have helped me grow personally and professionally and become a more well-rounded student and businesswoman.”
