Jasmine Stewart is the winner of MasterChef Junior, Season 5. When she took home the title at age 12, she became the first African American winner of MasterChef Junior and the only contestant in the show’s history to win the show after having been eliminated. Jasmine was honored to work with both Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi, the judges of this FOX television show, as well as with Martha Stewart, Wolfgang Puck and many others. Since the show, Jasmine has stayed busy with speaking engagements, Camp MasterChef, an online BluPrint cooking class called “Jasmine’s Delightful Desserts”, the Junior Chef Council for Great Wolf’s Lodge, and most recently was a part of the MasterChef Junior Live Tour. She is a rising 10th grader who lives in Milton, GA with her parents and older brother, Justin. Jasmine enjoys trying and creating new recipes whenever she has an opportunity.
Following in the steps of her parents, Jasmine started her own company, JustJas, LLC, which is focused on girl empowerment and motivational speaking. As a part of that effort, she created the hashtag, theme, and slogan of “Let Your Inner Girl Slay” which is designed to encourage young girls to be confident and not fear pursuing their inner dreams and hopes. At school, Jasmine cheers, is an active member of the student council, and runs track. She is also a member of the dance company at the Renaissance International School of Performing Arts (RISPA) and is represented by BYSB Talent Agency. In her spare time, Jasmine enjoys cooking, shopping, dancing, sports, and hanging with her friends.
