Jasmine Vitacco was born and raised in Texas and is of Cambodian-Italian-Australian ancestry. She is 29-years-old and is very excited about representing Cambodia at Miss Global 2021. She pursued her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Texas Christian University and received the Transfer Deans Scholarship for academic achievement. She is currently working on her Masters of Science as a Family Nurse Practitioner.



 The diva has been passionate about helping and serving others since she graduated from high school and has been a part of activities that have helped her to do so. She joined the first Asian/Asian-American sorority on campus called Kappa Lambda Delta Sorority where she had the opportunity to put together a fundraiser alongside her sorority sisters benefiting the Union Gospel Mission of Fort Worth, TX. This organization helps the homeless population in her community.

Coming from a medical background and her knack for helping others, made her a front liner during the covid-19 pandemic. She has been working alongside the very best in healthcare and has had the privilege of working at her hospital’s Covid vaccine clinic and swab site. Her home unit was also one of the first units to initiate the monoclonal antibody infusion for qualified Covid positive patients to help them recover sooner.

Jasmine is not new to the world of beauty pageants as in 2020, she decided to participate in Miss California USA where she represented Northridge California and was placed in the Top 15 at the end of the event finale. Her platform came to include encouraging young people to pursue their education and dreams. To support her platform, she hosted a backpack/school supply drive with a local gym called Slim Body fitness with owner and coach Tommie Sykes. This drive helped to benefit the Family Rescue Center, an organization that holds an annual school supply drive for low-income and homeless children in the Valley and provides many other resources to families in need.



Jasmine also had the opportunity to speak with the families of young students at the Northridge Public Library and meet the local aviation school called American Aviation that taught young people about flight. She hopes to use her platform as the Cambodian representative for Miss Global 2021 to inspire young people to pursue their dreams, education, and goals. She believes that no matter your background, story, or past challenges, there can still be triumph even in tragedy and that the biggest thing we can leave in this world is making a difference in the lives of others.

The diva visited Cambodia after graduating college and experienced and learned about her heritage during that trip and was inspired by the resilience of the people in Cambodia. She also saw a need for access to education and child support in impoverished areas. By the end of the trip, her family decided to sponsor a young girl before coming back to the U.S. She is a strong, kind, passionate, and focused woman who feels honored about representing a rich cultural country at Miss Global 2021 and believes that she will be able to make them proud.

Jasmine has started to prepare for the competition and could turn out to be one of the strongest contenders for the title.
