Jasym Mireles

Lone Star Community College

Jasym Mireles was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and moved to Texas at the age of 6 along with his family. Throughout his life as a Mexican student in a small Texan town, Jasym grew to appreciate diversity and developed a passion for the world and the many cultures it possesses. When he became a high school junior, Jasym was accepted into the competitive Rotary Youth Exchange program, through which he studied abroad in France for a year. This life-changing opportunity allowed him to meet fascinating people of various ethnicities and backgrounds, which further deepened his respect towards individuals who come from other regions of the globe. Upon his return to America, Jasym graduated with Honors from high school. Jasym is currently a sophomore student pursuing majors in both Business Administration and International Relations. He was awarded Outstanding Position Paper at the 2016 New York National Model United Nations Conference and is active on-campus as president of the Honors College, treasurer of the Rotaract Club, member of the Honors College Student Advisory Board, and member of the Phi Theta Kappa Society. Jasym believes that civic engagement is a necessity in order for a democracy to function and is excited to be a part of a movement that encourages students to be civically active.
