Hey, I’m Jasmine!
In the tech world I’ve been known as 247px and in the gaming world I’m HeyJasmine, either way, hello. I’m a UX designer, developer, founder, entrepreneur, content creator and techie amongst other things.
As the creator of Colorful Coders I aim to get kids of color involved in tech at younger ages. I host workshops teaching programming through art and storytelling. I use my platform as a partnered content creator on Mixer to inspire kids to not only want to play games but to build them as well. But it’s never too late to start your journey in tech now matter who you are and I hope the tips and insight you learn here will help inspire you to do so.
I embrace my “nerdy” ways and challenge stereotypes daily. One of the many reasons why I consider myself a unicorn. I’m really just a girl with big dreams and ambitions with a work ethic to match, which I believe is the recipe for success.
Learning and experiencing new things is fulfilling to me. It took a lot of soul searching for me to get to a place where I was comfortable saying and believing “I only have one life to live and I’m going to make the best of it while I can” because it’s one thing to say it but it another thing to live it.
I am passionate about art and technology and I’ve made a habit of learning new things everyday so I’ve gained a lot of insight and knowledge through out the years that I’d love to pass on to the world. I want everyone to be great and this is my contribution to making that happen.
