Meet Jesslin Williams
After high school, I wanted to continue my education at a school that was inclusive and where I felt like more than just a number. When I toured USM in 2014, it felt like a place where I could grow as an individual and much more. I completed my undergraduate studies in Biological Sciences at USM in 2018. I decided to return to USM for my master’s degree because I knew that I would be supported during the program and well-equipped afterwards.
