Yasmin Racquel Cunningham is the founder of Y.E.S. Women.
Yasmin is a native of The Big Easy—New Orleans, Louisiana. She received her Juris Doctorate from Mississippi College School of Law and her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Southern Mississippi. Currently, Yasmin lives in Atlanta, GA, where she is passionately pursuing a flourishing career in the legal field. One of her goals has always been to help others. As a young girl, Yasmin served her community, church, and school while diligently seeking to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
As a Hurricane Katrina survivor, Yasmin discovered the distress of loss and lack. She experienced losing her home, friends, and being separated from her family members. In the aftermath of this unfortunate event, Yasmin was inspired to cultivate a desire to help other young women discover their purpose. After Katrina, Yasmin relocated to Jackson, Mississippi, where she began her work with young women, encouraging and mentoring them to heal, mature, and thrive throughout their life journeys. She often asked God to reveal her destiny; however, that revelation did not come without Him showing her His will for the path she would travel to get there.
Yasmin’s passion to empower young women to blossom motivated her to create Y.E.S. Women, a nonprofit organization for young women who want to connect, find a niche where they can discover their passion, and obtain necessary skills to further their education. Y.E.S. stands for "Young, Educated, and Sacred." As a Y.E.S. Woman, Yasmin wants to embolden and encourage all women to find their inner beauty, be unique, and cultivate their minds.
