Strengths and Weaknesses
+Supportive: Yasmin is a self-proclaimed helper, willing to share her knowledge, experience, time and energy with anyone who needs it, especially with friends and family. She focuses on achieving a win-win situation, choosing empathy over judgment whenever possible.
+Reliable: Yasmin is meticulous and careful, taking a steady approach while remaining flexible to the needs of the situation; just enough to accomplish the end goal. She can promise any task to be completed with the highest standards, often going well beyond what is required.
+Empathetic: Imaginative and observant of those around her, she is very empathetic to the needs of others. She is keenly aware of emotional states and curious about walking in another’s perspective; the process of building friendship, she finds to be fascinating and inspiring.
-Humble: Yasmin is often reserved and concerned about others’ feelings and perspective. She often refrains from asserting her thoughts and opinions, deflecting any duly earned credit for her contributions. She maintains high personal standards, knowing she could have done some minor aspect of a task better. She is apt to downplay her successes entirely.
-Boundaries: A strong senses of duty and perfectionism combined with an aversion to emotional conflict to create situations where it is far too easy for Yasmin to overload herself and be overloaded by others; silently struggling to meet everyone’s expectations, especially her own.
-Self-Critique: Yasmin is reserved, private and very sensitive. She often internalizes her feelings, having trouble separating personal and impersonal situations. She believes that any situation is still an interaction between two people and any negativity from conflict or criticism can carry over from their professional to their personal lives, and back again.
-Altruistic: Yasmin is warm, caring, friendly, and good-natured. She is all too willing to let things slide, believing things will get better soon. She is afraid to burden others by accepting their helpful offers, watching her troubles mount unassisted.
Pre-Starfleet Historical Data
Yasmin was born on January 31, 2372 in Cairo, Egypt while her parents were visiting family. She was the first and only child born to active duty parents in Starfleet. Her mother was a researcher at the Daystrom Institute and her father; her father an engineer in Starfleet Corps of Engineers. As a young girl, she traveled the galaxy with her father and mother, receiving distance education and spending mission sensitive journeys with cousins in Cairo or San Francisco, Earth.
At age, 14 (2386) Yasmin was sent to a preparatory college which specialized in preparing students for future higher education and technical focused studies, many graduates of which were quick to pass their academy exams the first time around. Starfleet service ran through the family history, many ancestors serving as MACO’s (in the earliest days of Starfleet), Engineers, and Captains.
Finding herself far too interested in a variety of subjects, she was assigned to an instructor who welcomed her desire to create an interdisciplinary portfolio which would focus on a combined curriculum which favored both the sciences and engineering tracks.
In her senior year of secondary education, a Starfleet recruiter came to present during “Bold Futures” week where many professionals and career tracks were presented to students. Yasmin, already regaled by family tales of childhood, was sold on a career in Starfleet. The Universal Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (USVAB) results had flagged her as a potential Starfleet Academy candidate and Yasmin was one of several students pulled from class to speak with the recruiter.
Under advice from her family and the recruiter, Yasmin participated in the six-week preparatory program designed to aid students in passing the entrance exams.
Starfleet Service Record
Starfleet Academy felt more like home than traversing the stars with her parents ever did. She was assigned quarters with Cadet Zemke, a terran female from San Francisco and of similar age. Yasmin’s life had been quite different, but Starfleet Service was a common denominator between the two. Their differences became grounds for a blossoming friendship. Yasmin declared her major after the first year of general studies. Fascinated by travelling the stars and steering a starship, she spent significant time in the Navigational Track, which offered her the opportunity to study astrometrics and propulsion systems.
Yasmin was also privileged to gain knowledge on the Quantum Slipstream Drive being rolled out in the Fleet’s newest starships. Upon graduation, she was assigned to the USS Cassiopeia, a new Polaris class cruiser, as the navigation officer.
