Jasmin “Jaiye” Singletary is a creative artist-preneur, passionate about empowering youth, especially those of color, to find their own unique ways to voice their stories and ultimately thrive into whole beings. Jaiye has worked with youth of all ages, engaging in afterschool mentoring and tutoring in middle schools, and SAT prep for high school students. She also initiated extracurricular activities, such as a Poetry Club, for at risk youth as part of the Boys and Girls Club.
Originally from Baltimore, MD, Jaiye now resides in Miami, Florida pursuing advanced education. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Florida International University with her Bachelor’s in Sociology as well as an undergraduate certificate in Global Black Studies. Very soon she will complete her Master’s in African and African Diaspora Studies with a graduate certificate in Afro-Latin and Caribbean Studies, also at FIU. Later, after a brief reprieve, she plans to return in order to complete her PhD in the future.
Jaiye is also a spoken word artist. She uses poetic inspiration to help youth learn how to better express themselves confidently. She has been a long time advocate of S.O.U.L Sisters since meeting various staff members during her volunteer work with Power U. She is honored to now be part of a dynamic team whose mission aligns with her own personal values and passions.
