Jasmine Min Cho is the Founder of Yummyholic, an online bakery specializing in edible art. In 2017, she was recognized as a CREATOR of the Year by the Pittsburgh Technology Council and Creative Industries Network for using cookie art to elevate representation for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Her TEDxPittsburgh talk, “Cookies as a Form of Activism,” garnered over 40,000 views within a month of its upload. In May of 2019, she expanded into fine art and wrote and illustrated the children’s book, “Role Models Who Look Like Me: Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders Who Made History.”

Based on her artful approach to baked goods and positive experiences in the kitchen, Jasmine was inspired to return to school to explore baking as a form of art therapy. She is currently pursuing research with hopes to pioneer the nation’s first research-based and trauma-informed bake therapy program.
