No matter what my plans are, no matter how big my goals and aspirations may be my family has and will continue to be my greatest support system. As the child of first generation immigrants, I keep working every day because I am working to provide a better life for my family and to make my parents proud because they have sacrificed their entire lives to give me a life full of opportunities.” – Jasmine C.

Advice from Jasmine: I would say hesitation is the best way to cheat yourself out of achieving your dreams. There is no perfect time to start a business, create something or follow your passion. The best time is now. A lot of people hesitate out of fear of failing but they need to realize that failure is a normal part of life. Life is too short for hesitation, that is I why I have started to live by the mentality, “Better an oops, than what if” and I encourage others to do the same. I would say work towards you goals or venture a little bit every day and you’ll see God will allow everything to fall into place.
Fun Fact: Everyday I pitch my business/brand to someone new. One thing I’ve learned is that I am my brand and one of then best ways to inform people about Minorities to Majorities and its mission is to simply tell people about it. I may pitch it to a classmate, my hairdresser, someone at the grocery store or even a potential investor, but nevertheless, I am spreading information about my business in some way. I don’t always have to pitch my business in person, sometimes it is through an email or social media. But every bit of exposure counts. – Jasmine
