After the contest ended, we were able to catch up with Jasmine and ask her a few questions.
What was the inspiration behind your PSA and why did you ultimately go with your idea?
Well, actually, it's funny. I had a cold while I was creating this video. It was kind of hard to tell what I was saying on some parts, so I decided to use note cards instead of speaking. And it worked out nicely. People told me the note cards were what made the video stand out and what made them pay attention.
What did you learn or get out of the process?
It was a great experience and I thank you for allowing me to take part in it. I think it's important for our generation, especially our youth, to become aware of the effects and consequences of HIV at an early age.
What does World AIDS Day mean to you?
World AIDS Day means protecting yourself and creating awareness about the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Not just today but every day.
