Jasmine Robinson started the Collegiate Mom Coalition in 2010 while she was attending Prairie View A&M University as an undergraduate student. She saw a need for organization to support young moms when she herself became a teen mom in 2008 at the age of 19 and again at 21. Statistically, less than 2% of teen moms graduate college by the age of 22.
She beat those odds when she graduated with her Bachelor's of Science in Architecture in 2012 and received her Master's of Community Development in 2013. Her mission is to continue to help young moms to achieve this themselves.
Originally from Houston TX, Jasmine Robinson now resides in Pearland Tx with her 2 daughters Kenadie 10, Kimora 9 and her husband Tracey Robinson. She is a proud 2nd year committee member of Bossbabes ATX, a non-profit organization that hosts event series, showcases, strategic collaborations and professional development programs that provide a platform of visibility, outreach and financial opportunity to 1500+ emerging women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers per year. She was also the 2018 scholarship recipient from State of the Uterus where her organization, Collegiate Mom Coalition was awarded $1,700.
Jasmine was also recently selected as one out of 245 applicants for a 2 year "Movement Mujeres" fellowship program under Deeds not words and the Jolt initiative started by former Texas Senator Wendy Davis and Jolt Executive director Cristina Tzintzun that serves as a platform for 25 women of color across the state of Texas to change the landscape of Texas Legislature.
