Art Jackson

Resident Assistant, TA for Biology, On-Call EMT

B.S. in University Studies with a Medical Humanities certification, University of Texas at Arlington

Appointed 2021

I am a recent graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington where I obtained a B.S in University studies and a Medical HUmanities certification. I have spent the last 4 years traveling around the U.S and out of the country to experience and learn from other cultures. My plans now involve using my experiences to expand on my current business, a hair salon in South Arlington. I want to use my business as a vessel to educate and connect the black community. It is known that “knowledge is power”, and “It’s about who you know, not what you know.” Through lively discussions and actively connecting my clients and peers to each other, I have been able to see growth in my community already! Although the growth of this salon is my passion, I do plan on attending medical school and seeing as much of the world as I can.

My graduation from [HS]2 in 2016 was the best experience I could have asked for, and I gained so many memories. This upcoming program has me excited to be a part of the team creating the learning foundation for the program scholars. I didn’t realize but HS^2 left me craving hiking and experiencing the outdoors as much as possible. My hobbies also include reading medical magazines, playing fetch with my pup, driving 6+ hours for the sights, and telling everyone I know the things I did, learned, and who I met during my time at the program.
