Jasmine Burton is putting her creative potential to great use.
When Jasmine learned that pubescent girls often drop out of school because they lack toilets, she made it her 18-year-old mission to design toilets. Since then, Jasmine hasn’t slowed down.
Jasmine’s transforming water, sanitation and hygiene in communities that lack the resources to build safe systems for themselves. Jasmine does this by harnessing her design skills to build systems that support people, specifically women and minorities. In our interview, Jasmine describes her life as 1 of 9 Americans in a Global Health fellowship in Zambia and her 3 tips for designers seeking to make the world a better place.
