Yassie is a business born out of creative thinking, helping others and a passion for beautiful things. Started by 19 year old Yasmin ‘Yassie’ Osman – who was inspired while studying a Fashion Enterprise Program – it offers jewellery Yasmin makes by hand, using natural stones of all shapes, sizes and colour; some of them healing stones. Through this process Yassie aims to bring joy to other women, and encourage those looking to create things to start a business themselves. “Jewellery was a hobby at first and I loved it – then I realised I could make a business from it.”
Yassie lives in her birth city of Sydney with her parents, two brothers and grandmother, and her cat, Silvie. With them she speaks English and Arabic, which she learnt from her father who escaped his home country of Lebanon to escape war. She has a love of people. She loves meeting new faces through a range of activities – from mingling, to playing basketball, to being on stage. One day, she hopes to be a public speaker with a successful business story to share.
