Jasmin Harper ’13 Senior Profile: French and Francophone Studies

HARPER Jasmin ecransSince I was six years old, I’ve been in love with the French language. I tried to teach myself French by listening to cheesy “Family Circus Lyric Language French” tapes. At that time, however, I definitely could not imagine the day that I would be graduating from W&M as a French and European Studies double major! At the College, I have taken many courses that have provided me with interdisciplinary exposure to my various interests in French politics, European history, and international relations. I am so grateful to the wonderful professors in the French department who have really fostered my interests in French culture. I am also so thankful for the opportunity I had to study abroad at Sciences-Po Lille last spring. It was by far the best experience of my life, and I cannot wait to go back to France. After graduation, I hope to return to France as a Teaching Assistant.
