Yasmine Creese-Brown was the first born of 3 in Brooklyn, NY and grew up in Albany, NY. She moved to California when she was 13. Yasmine went to middle school and high school in sunny Fresno, California and graduated in the top 10% of her class. Once it was time to leave the nest, she went off to attend American University in the Washington D.C. area and graduated with a B.S. in Accounting. In order to gain a better sense of her career aspirations, she joined a pre-professional development program that exposed her to opportunities on wall street and main street. Once she graduated from American University, she went straight into banking and worked for HSBC bank, where she obtained the Series 7 and 63, also known as the General Securities Representative Exam. Soon after, she landed a Hedge Fund Accounting position and accounted for 12 portfolios, which had a net asset value of around $1.5 billion. It didn’t take long for Yasmine to realize that there weren’t many women who looked like her in the finance industry. Discouraged but not quite ready to call it quits on Wall Street, Yasmine took on a position at the same non-profit that helped her break into banking. Over the past 4 years she’s helped hundreds of students strengthen their interview skills and refine their career goals to land their dream job after graduating college. Although her career has changed, her love for math has not. She’s always considered the challenges of math to be fun and found a way to incorporate it into a board game that parents can enjoy with their kids. Yasmine is the founder of the JUICE game: a roll-and-move tabletop board game that playfully exposes math skills. The purpose of the game is to take over the lemonade-stand industry around the city, by answering the most math questions correctly, combined with a tad bit of luck. There’s also an interchangeable beginners deck, sold separately, for the kiddos who are currently learning addition and subtraction. The game includes a unique board game design, 4 pawns, 30 math-filled questions, 30 action cards, 20 trading tokens, game money and instructions. Given how big of an effect the pandemic has had on children and learning, Yasmine hopes that the JUICE game can serve as a fun way to learn with family and friends.
