Jasmine Mithani caught the programming bug when she enrolled in a computer science class at Pasadena City College while on a gap year from the University of Chicago. Upon her return, she studied media theory by day and contributed to open source projects at night. She somehow found time to work as a game developer at DoSomething.org, a designer at Graphicacy, and a graphics reporter at National Public Radio. At DataMade, Jasmine loves transforming complex data into meaningful visualizations, and is the team member most likely to fret over font weights. After 5pm she heads to South Side Weekly
, where she serves as Data Editor. Empowering disadvantaged populations to pursue and maintain careers in technology is near and dear to her heart. In her free moments, Jasmine reads fifty-two books a year, dreams of zines, and doodles in her bullet journal.
