Yazmeen Jamieson ‘16 has always been proud of her roots. As an Upper School student at Bayview Glen, she helped plan Black History Month celebrations and organized guest speakers to present to her peers. She won awards for her community outreach and always looked for ways to connect her storytelling through creative outlets like spoken word poetry.

Her outstanding athletic talents are also part of what makes Yazmeen tick.  She is the goalkeeper on the first Jamaican squad to capture a FIFA World Cup berth.  Her story was recently reported in the Toronto Star. Click here to read more.

               

At Bayview Glen, Yazmeen played a wide range of sports including basketball, volleyball, track and field and of course, soccer. She will play in net next July at the FIFA World Cup in France.
