A note from their founder, Jasmine Lopez
"I was raised by a single mom, in a low income home, and how my lived experiences has shaped the way I saw myself and the world. Looking back I see the influence of my high school photography teacher, Mr. Bullen, and how it was through his encouraging words that I decided to become a photographer. His words gave me the hope to believe I could be more, and that I was actually good at something. I began wondering what would it look like if we had a space to host events and workshops, where I, along with other boss friends, taught creative skillsets like photography, graphic design, video, podcasting, hand-lettering and more, partner that with financial literacy, such as how to budget, save, and business plan. I can imagine how learning a creative skillset could provide opportunities for our young adults to not only make an income, but find something they are passionate about, and in turn thrive."
