More About Yasmine

A few fun facts. My full name is Yasmine Jameelah Chisolm Jackson. I fell in love with writing during a really traumatic time in my life. Initially, I thought I was just writing my way out of a relationship, but as it turns out I wrote my way into a career. 3+ years and several countries, published articles and features later (by the companies such as Blavity, Forever 21, Rebdolls, and Black and Well) my writing and content creation has grown just as I have. I'm the proud momma of a wellness company called Transparent Black Girl, and my lifestyle brand - Meant To Be Yasmine that focuses on inner and outer beauty, wellness, travel, and self-help for millennials. I'm celibate, which means I won't have sex again until I get married, and I love gospel music just as much as I love Beyoncé. I'm based in Jersey, but I attend grad school in the city at CUNY. I would move, but NYC Starbucks are too crowded, so yeah..there's that. I’m currently on a weight loss journey, I gained 100 lbs in college and I’m almost at my half way mark, so its getting easier to be open about it. I hope that my journey inspires others to do, what I strive to daily - honor myself enough to become who I’m meant to be.
