Jasmine Park was the former Policy Fellow for Youth and Education Privacy at the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF). She managed the pilot Student Privacy Train-the-Trainer Program, which seeks to scale student privacy expertise across the country by building the capacity of local education agency and education service agency staff to help the schools and districts they serve, equipping college of teacher education professors and staff to integrate student privacy best practices and important legal trends into their institution’s curriculum, and training attorneys for K-12 educational agencies and institutions to advise their clients and train their peers on the rapidly changing legal landscape. Jasmine also coordinated the K-12 Privacy Leaders Working Group, composed of almost 150 student privacy professionals at the state and district levels from across the country, providing important updates and timely resources on student privacy. She has researched and written on international child privacy trends and student attitudes toward privacy in higher education. Jasmine is particularly interested in issues of digital equity and mitigating the potential disparate impact of new technologies and policies on vulnerable populations, including students with special needs, English language learners, and youth experiencing homelessness. She is also passionate about ensuring youth voices are represented in informing the decisions that govern their use of technology.
Jasmine received her B.A. cum laude in History and East Asian Studies from Harvard University in 2014 and her M.A. in Global Affairs from Yale University in 2019, where she focused on digital anthropology and data governance. From 2015 to 2017, Jasmine served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cambodia, where she gained two years of on-the-ground experience as an educator. She worked closely with local government, school administrators, law enforcement, and community leaders to conduct needs assessments and to provide access to the training and resources necessary to address self-identified needs. Jasmine previously interned with the Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of International Affairs and Asian Americans Advancing Justice. She speaks Korean, Chinese, French, and Khmer with varying degrees of fluency. She also serves on the board of Brio, a nonprofit that empowers local partners to design and launch mental health solutions in vulnerable communities globally.
