MEET JASMINE

Photographer

While there are lots of ladies killing it as editors, DJs and small business owners, there are just as many girls who are still on struggle street. Questions like, "who am I?" "what am I doing with my life?" "do I have to know now?" pervade and paralyze lots of talented youngins. Enter Jasmine Kim. Rather, question from Jasmine Kim in my tumblr ask box. The message was sincere but a little nervous and inquired about potentially helping with the projects I was working on. She wasn't like a lot of 20 year olds I had met. She supported herself, paid for her college tuition and talked about having to take care of responsibilities at home. And didn't complain about it. But she had questions, lots of them and instead of answering them I asked her more. And instead of asking her to be my intern, I asked her if she would be a feature in hopes of making other girls who feel like their on struggle street feel a little less alone. —Sarah Kim
