Meet Jasmine Nicole bowman

My name is Jasmine Nicole Bowman and I am a Warner Robins, GA native currently living in Richmond, Virginia. I’m the creator of UglySwn, LLC, a CDEP Dual Degree Scholar/Graduate of THE Fort Valley State University and the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville.

Uglyswn? what an interesting name. tell us more about uglyswn and where we can find you all.

UglySwn is a movement dedicated to redefining self-love, beauty, and confidence. The central focal point U (you/the individual) and showcasing the flaws of being human on an everyday basis. It is our mission to gauge a new synergy around what these sentiments mean to others and informing everyone that being yourself is 10,000% okay. Our brand emphasizes finding the beauty within and embracing the ugly. More information can be found on our website and various social media platforms. We provide updates on a regular basis. Be sure to follow our journey and donate!

Uglyswn has a youtube channel coming soon? what an exciting new direction! As black professional women, we’re constantly growing, changing, and starting anew. would you mind sharing what starting anew means for uglyswN?

UglySwn was launched in the Fall of 2017. Although the brand had promising beginnings, I felt our identity was misconstrued or categorized into a collection of mass produced/common brands. Starting anew for UglySwn means everything. We are re-branding/re-launching ourselves to ensure our message reaches masses on a global scale. It is our hope that this fresh start will grant us the ability to mature and grow stronger in our communities.

if you could recommend any book to other ladies interested in business, what would it be and why?

“The Little Black Book of Success” by Elaine Meryl Brown, Marsha Haygood, and Rhonda McLean. Made by women of color for women of color (can be purchased on Amazon). This book changed my entire perspective on what success can be for a woman who looks exactly like me. It redirected my sense of purpose for creating US, the validity/importance of US and why I must continue to fight for brands similar to my own.
