Welcome to a brand new episode of the ¿Quién Tú Eres? podcast, where we explore the conflict we often face between "professionalism" & being our authentic selves. This week's guest is Jasmine Ruiz.
Jasmine Ruiz is a NYC-based comedian, writer, and content creator. With an extensive background in the entertainment industry, she has honed a diverse skill set including comedy, writing, and content creation. Her passion for storytelling and creativity allows her to create original and engaging content across all platforms. She’s currently working on the trailer for her dream project. She is manifesting good reviews for the trailer and hoping the dramedy makes its debut on HBO!
In this week’s episode, Jasmine tells us how she maintained her authenticity, both in school and in the workplace. While attending Barnard, an Ivy League school, she experienced a culture shock and started to learn what was ok and was not ok to say in PWIs (predominantly white institutions). This kind of social education continued in the corporate setting where she found herself going head to head with toxic hierarchical company cultures. In the end, Jasmine decided that she would be comfortable making others uncomfortable if it meant dismantling the hierarchy that was holding her and her colleagues back. Tune in to hear how her shamelessness, as she describes it, has allowed her to live her most authentic self.
