Jasmin has always lived between worlds being told she’s not fully American in the US and a gringa in South America. Cardenas was awarded a 2020-2022 LAB Fellowship from Georgetown University’s Laboratory for Global Performance & Politics for her work harnessing the power of art into action. In 2018, Cardenas was recognized by the Alliance of Latinx Theater Artists of Chicago as winner of the ALTA’s annual Outstanding Storyteller Award.
