She has always been passionate about sexual education ever since she was young. At 14, as part of her project for UNICEF and Department of Social Welfare Malaysia, she organized a workshop involving schools within her district where they talk about STIs, consent and boundaries and more.
Today, her passion of sexual empowerment and education, as well as bringing Asian stories and voices to the forefront continues. Jasmine curates Jasexplains (pronounced Jas-Explains), a safe and empowering sex positive space for individuals to unlearn everything we’ve been taught about our bodies, pleasure and intimacy.
Through the platform, Jasmine creates educational content on her social media, and hosts social mingles, workshops and talks that provides inclusive, safe spaces for respectful, educational and empowering conversations to take place.
In her quest to sharing more Asian stories and voices, Jasmine produces and hosts her own podcast called, ‘I Wish Someone Told Me‘ where she invites guests from Malaysia and throughout the region to share raw and honest stories about their personal journey of sexual empowerment and enlightenment. She also features prominent figures within the sexual health, advocacy and education space on her show to highlight the work that they do and the communities they’ve impacted.
