Born in the South Suburbs of Chicago, Illinois but raised in a small town in Mississippi called Water Valley, Jasmine is no stranger to adapting to change.
In her debut memoir, As Jasmines Bloom, she shares her life experiences and how it has shaped her into the woman that she is today. From suffering tremendous losses at an early age, dealing with societal pressure, learning the true meaning of love, defining what success means to her, all while managing mental health struggles, Jasmine found the inner strength to fight for herself and become her biggest advocate. The goal of As Jasmines Bloom, is to show young Black women that no matter what season of your life you may be facing, you can still bloom.
Personal Affirmation: You can bloom into whoever God has called you to be no matter the season that you are in.
