I am Jazmin Johnson graduating from Hanover High School and I will attending UNCW in the fall in hopes to double major in psychology and recreational therapy. I enjoy anything involving music whether that is dancing singing, or playing viola. I also love working with special needs individuals and going to events that my church holds for my youth group every week.
