Black Girls Rock because of people like ScholarCHIPS Founder and Executive Director, Yasmine Arrington. After losing her mother and seeing her father in prison for most of her life, Yasmine began a nonprofit organization to aid children with incarcerated parents in their pursuits of higher education.
Her advocacy and selflessness has awarded Yazzie many accolades, and launched her successful career as a motivational speaker, media personality and model. Coupled with her degree in Strategic Communications from Elon University, Yazzie has used her story and platform to create both a radio and television show because her goal is to one day have a career like Oprah’s.
In addition to her career in media, Yasmine is studying Theology and wants to obtain her preacher’s license. Join this week's episode of Max Out Time, where we discuss the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the professional modeling scene and some of D.C.’s most prominent young stars like herself.
