Jasmine Miller

Jasmine Miller is a Nashville native excited to return to her hometown after her first year at Stanford Law School. She graduated from Harvard in 2013, after which she worked at John Overton and Cane Ridge High Schools through Oasis Center’s College Connection program. Her experiences working in education access, particularly as it pertains to English Language Learners, immigrants, and refugees have motivated her to pursue a joint J.D./Masters of Education degree. At Stanford, Jasmine is co-president of the Asian Pacific Islander Law Student Association and a co-founder of Stanford First Generation Professionals. In her spare time, she sings in the chamber choir.

 

Daniela Cubillo

Daniela was born in San Jose, Costa Rica and was raised in Miami, Florida. She is currently completing a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations and three minors in Women’s Studies, Politics, and Psychology. During her freshman year, she was selected as a Howard University Pipeline to Maternal and Child Health Professions Program scholarship recipient, where she was able to study and react to the inequalities in health care for women of various origins and income levels. During her sophmore year in college, she worked at the International Community of Women Living with HIV- East Africa (ICWEA) in Ssenge, Uganda. Throughout her undergraduate career, Daniela volunteered with several organizations and started many projects focusing on the health of women and families, including writing health curriculums for Washington D.C. public schools and Miami-Dade county public schools, advocating in congress with and for Planned Parenthood, and teaching health care courses in several states across the country.  

 

Jadhziah St. Julien

Jahdziah is a native of Margate, a small town located in South Florida. Having lived her entire life as a member of one of the several immigrant communities in the area home, she has cultivated an appreciation for culture, language, and tradition.

A senior at Princeton University, she is currently pursuing a bachelors degree in History, with a focus on American History.  As a history major, she has learned the importance of narratives and the need to recognize not only the context of historical events, but also the nuanced perspectives, positioning, and power dynamics present in historical documents.

As a member of her campus community, Jahdziah serves as a residential academic adviser for first and second years and participates in faith based student groups.

When she isn’t in the library, she enjoys having meaningful discussion with friends over coffee, journaling, finding music, and thinking about life. 

This summer, she is interning with the Tennessee Justice Center through PICS and is excited to learn about and observe the intersection of healthcare, advocacy, policy, litigation, and history.

 

Caleb Self

Caleb was born in Augusta, GA, raised in Jackson, TN, but after living here for five years, he calls Nashville home. He attended Lipscomb University where he earned a B.A. in Biology and graduated cum laude in 2016. While a student at Lipscomb, he was active in student government, served as secretary of his social club, and studied abroad for a semester in Vienna, Austria. During his junior year, Caleb traveled to Honduras on a medical mission trip where he became interested in healthcare advocacy. He now attends Belmont University College of Law where he writes on the Criminal Law Journal. In his free time, Caleb enjoys running, watching old movies, traveling, volunteering at Planned Parenthood, and going to shows at TPAC.

Emma was born and raised in Nashville and is currently a rising senior at Sewanee, The University of The South. She is pursuing a major in Politics with a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies. She also volunteers with multiple children’s programs. Through her studies of Politics, she became interested in how policy advocacy can be used to make a difference in our community and help those in-need. Emma is excited to work with the TJC this summer as the policy advocacy intern. In her free time, she enjoys listening to music, going to the park with her five dogs and her favorite color is purple.

 

Taylor Ward

Taylor began her journey in serving others during her undergraduate career. She volunteered countless hours with the Ann Campbell Early Learning Center, the Girl Scouts of the USA, and raising money for Prevent Child Abuse America.

After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University with a B.S. in Political Science, she worked for the Tennessee House of Representatives as a Bill Clerk where she clerked for the House Health Committee. The experience left Taylor with a sense of urgency to get to law school so she could further help others, particularly the ones who couldn’t help themselves.

During her 1L year at the University of Tennessee College of Law, Taylor continued to serve others and logged over 40 hours of pro bono service. She had the opportunity to go on the alternative spring break trip to Flint, Michigan and work with attorneys involved in helping with the water crisis. 

In her free time, Taylor can be found in the gym lifting weights, aggressively cheering on the Nashville Predators, or watching New Girl on Netflix for the sixth time. She is happy to be at TJC to continue serving others and fighting for social justice.
