Jasmine has grown up with Go Beyond Holidays. She was there at the beginning, being Director’s Ian and Anna’s daughter, and fellow director Neil’s God daughter as a cheerful 4 year old, with lots of smiles for our guests.

Now a mature 15 year old, she is studying at the International Lycee in Manosque, France and hopes to be a photo journalist. Jasmine enjoys climbing, photography, music and is an avid reader.

She has been itching to work for Go Beyond’s summer program and finally she is old enough and will be joining the team for the Dartmoor program.

A Few Questions to Jasmine Callen

What motivates and inspires you?

Waking up on a nice warm sunny day, when I have no homework, and knowing that I can play music full blast, always inspires me to do something new.

What are your strengths?

I am good at listening to people and wanting to help them with their problems.

What about your weaknesses, where do you need support?

I’m sometimes not very good at timing my jokes.

What is the highlight of working for Go Beyond Holidays?

Helping someone, always gives me joy. Knowing that I have helped a person feel better, and as small as the change may be, made a positive impact on them.

Do you have any personal ambitions?

Since I was little, I have always wanted to travel the world, photographing the undiscovered beauty it holds for us.

Finally, if you were set adrift on a desert island which three albums, three films, three books and one luxury would you take?

My three albums would be: “Brushes with happiness” by the Wave Pictures; “The Doors” by the doors and “Spirit of Eden” by Talk Talk.

My three books would be: “Dracula” by Bram Stoker, THE ENTIRE DARK TOWERS SERIES BY STEPHEN KING? “Selected Poems” by Dylan Thomas.

Luxury item would be a pen and paper.
