She has been equally successful on and off the court. 

We asked Yasmin a few questions to get to know her better, here are her answers;

1. Tell us about your volleyball career.     "I started playing volleyball in 7th grade and I loved it even when I made the B team. I started playing club that year and I progressed more and more each year".

2.  What is your most embarrassing moment on the court?   "I got hit in the face my freshman year on varsity. I was playing right side and was playing defense in the front row. The opposing middle spiked the volleyball and it hit me right in the face!" 

3. What are the top 3 songs on your play list?   " I Fall Apart by Post Malone, Losin' control by Russ and Beautiful girls by Sean Kingston". 

4. What is your dream job?   "A dentist or orthodontist"

5. What is your favorite thing about volleyball? "The feeling that comes along with playing well with your teammates". 

"Yasmin is very gifted as an athlete. She is extremely intelligent, coachable and has a team first mentality. It has been enjoyable watching her grow as a person and as an athlete. We are sad that this is her last year in the CB Elite program but we wish her continued success"   --Coach De Hoog
