My name is Yasmine Brown, Hedge Funds & Glam mentorship program founder, private equity consultant, registered stock broker and glam connoisseur.
Last year I embarked on a new journey that opened my eyes to a whole new world of feminism- pageantry. Like most activities and hobbies, pageantry is tailed with stereotypes and preconceived notions. Needless to say, I was told that if I partake in such an event, professionals would no longer take me seriously (I work in the private equity industry). "Pageant girls are superficial and dumb," this anonymous individual said. However, my mind was set and I wanted to try it. Fast forward 6 months later, I can concluded and protest that pageant girls aren't superficial and dumb. They're quit courageous and confident and exude a form of bad-assery that is unapologetic. I strongly believe that all women carry a trait of bad-assery (token word from Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes) and that is the purpose of this blog; to fuel and grow that inner fire of bad-assery, passion and confidence.
