In an interview with on February 18, 2019, Yasmien explained the reason behind her chosen course.

"Na-inspire kasi ako dahil... 'di ba tumira kami dati sa Kuwait?

"'Tapos, nasa war zone kami dun, nasa Gulf War kami. Nakita ko yung mga struggles ng mga OFW, Overseas Filipino Workers. Tapos, yung mom ko din po mismo naging OFW. Nakita ko po na hindi gan'on ka-fair yung treatment sa mga kababayan natin d'onParang sabi ko noon, baka puwede ko silang matulungan in the future in my own little way kung kaya ko, kung hindi na ako artista."

Yasmien first took up Foreign Service at New Era University, but was unable to keep up with her studies because of her showbiz commitments. She then transferred to Global City Innovative College, and shifted to nursing.

Her third course, Political Science, became her degree. 

Yasmien finished it within the year she worked on the TV series Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka, Cain at Abel, and most recently, Hiram na Anak.


Will she eventually take up law?

Congratulations, Yasmien!
