Illini Success Story

Freshman year, Jasmine Joda often asked herself, "How do I want to make an impact here?" She discovered the answer to that question quickly, becoming a member of the Business Council Executive Board, chairman of the Council of Presidents, president of the sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha, and more during her time on campus. Now a Management Consulting Analyst at Accenture, Jasmine looks forward to becoming a mentor to those who follow her.
