Jasmine was the Editor-at-Large for Thrive on Campus at Oxford University, where she received her Masters in Gender and Digital Media. She's an Italian-Egyptian-American who finds daily motivation in her love of people, and (especially) quirky ideas. In 2019 she founded The Bloom, a newsletter for positive global exchanges curated with an intersectional, feminist lens.
Jasmine has worked in many different environments from digital media startups to international human rights organisations, and one of the problems she consistently noticed was the stress and anxiety young people felt in parsing through the exorbitant information on the internet for things like meaningful jobs and reliable news. That's how the Bloom was born: to continue pursuing her desire to strengthen the well-being of communities around her, while joining together her passions for women's rights and digital media.
When she's not building The Bloom, you can find her in a coffee shop sipping on a cappuccino spending some quality time with friends, or reading on a sun soaked bench.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
