As stereotyping and discrimination are increasingly being frowned upon, Jailan Yasser relies on her personal experience, scientific research and live experiments to explains in what ways stereotyping is actually beneficial to a person and how originally it’s part of our coping and survival mechanisms.

Entering her fourth year in college, Jailan believes in the power of student activities and extra curricular activities in developing youth. Jailan has been part of ALMUN her entire college years, started as a delegate and became a secretariat twice. Jailan has also joined other activities such as AIESEC CU and the theater team.
