jasmine-lee

jasmine lee (mid 30′s) for the the life and time of juniper lee fandom; while debuting in both omniverse and fusionfall (in my dreams)

basically she gets summoned through a time portal/warp in order to mentor juniper after losing hope on herself all the while saving the world.

tho she was 11 and 25 in the original series, wooooooooow. since when did grandma’s get attractive? and yes no regrets on making a mulan line reference and is a zakiper+jakiper shipper; plus can we all agree on having rook crushing on her????? also wanted to draw juniper in this too

Destined from birth to be this world’s Protector, Juniper Lee has to fight all manner of monsters to maintain the balance between the world of magic and humanity. Juniper is a typical 11-year-old girl born into the secret responsibility of fighting the forces of mischief and chaos that hide everywhere. The Life and Times of Juniper Lee was created by Judd Winick and premiered on Cartoon Network in 2005.

Demographic Shifts Redefine What It Means to Be Korean
New York Times

Jasmine Lee realizes just how Korean she’s become when she breaks out in the language, forgetting that her Filipino mother on the other end of the phone can’t understand her. But she is reminded of the limits of assimilation when Koreans, impressed by her fluency, comment: “You sound more Korean than Koreans do.”

James Oaten of Australia’s ABC News 24 reports on South Korea’s uneasy embrace of its growing immigrant population. He interviews immigrants about their experiences in the country, including Rep. Jasmine Lee, the first non-ethnic Korean member of the National Assembly. Oaten also speaks with Ryu Byung-kyun, one of the leaders of a reactionary anti-immigrant group that accuses foreigners of stealing jobs, committing crimes, sparking an increase in the divorce rate and Lord knows what else. Oaten: “Korea can’t go back. Its population is aging rapidly and it needs foreign workers to keep the economy growing. But for a country and culture that has long celebrated ethnic purity, moving to a more multicultural society isn’t proving easy.”
