Jasmin earned her B.A. and M.Ed. in teaching German and English at the University of Cologne, Germany. Discovering her love for teaching at an early age, she has taught German and English to elementary and high school students in Germany over the course of ten years. Her bachelor’s thesis focused on Schiller’s educational thinking in recourse to Kant. In her master’s thesis, she examined connections in the educational thinking of Friedrich Nietzsche and the New Humanists. She studied abroad at Ege University, Izmir, Turkey, in 2015 to discover Turkey not only as her heritage but in pursuance of educational interests. She then taught German and studied Arabic and English literature at Allegheny College in the academic year 2016/17. During her master’s degree in 2020, she studied German and English language and literature at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece, to increase her first-hand knowledge in German-Greek and Turkish-Greek relations. Receiving a DAAD scholarship in 2021 allowed her to teach German at UNC Charlotte for two consecutive years. Her current interests include Turkish-German literature and film, educational philosophy, and ancient modern relations.
