School of Law & School of Business

ykalhor@sandiego.edu

Yasmine Kalhor is a dual-degree JD/MBA student set to graduate in May 2021. She grew up in Huntington Beach, CA and despite living in Surf City she never learned how to surf! Instead, she spent most of her days growing up playing soccer, practicing hot yoga, and doing jigsaw puzzles. Yasmine moved to San Diego three years ago in pursuit of her JD and MBA. She is very passionate about using her education to give back to the community and has volunteered at several legal clinics in San Diego. One day she hopes to be in-house counsel for a company that believes in the triple bottom line. Yasmine is very excited to serve on the Graduate Student Council Executive Board and can't wait to meet all the incredible graduate students at USD. In the meantime, you can find her studying at Moniker General or enjoying some souffle pancakes at Morning Glory.
