On November 5, in honor of Veterans' Day, I will be joined by Yasin Jackson. Yasin is the Project Coordinator at the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and is the Chamber’s Mission Continues Squad Leader and Fellow. Yasin joined the Mission Continues NYC Platoon in January 2014. The Mission Continues “empowers veterans facing the challenge of adjusting to life at home to find new missions.” They “redeploy veterans in their communities, so that their shared legacy will be one of action and service.” Yasin’s responsibilities have helped her serve her community by volunteering, making connections with other veterans and professionals, and building herself as a leader and manager.
Formerly, Yasin was a Sergeant in the United States Army, and worked as a Senior Intelligence Analyst. She served in Incheon, South Korea; Doha, Qatar; and Atlanta, Georgia. In those positions, she gained valuable experience as a Strategic and Operational Manager, Organizational Planner, and Information Security Officer. She is currently pursuing her undergraduate degree in Business.
