Jasmine Kennedie Job
Jasmine Kennedie is a drag queen by profession. Pre-pandemic, she worked 4-5 nights a week, and now, though the gigs are less, she was able to “adapt” and still maintain her job as a drag performer.
This self-labeled “backflipping bimbo” from New York City, Jasmine always dreamed of going to Hollywood. So, she learned how to make up from her sister and Youtube videos and started from there. Over time, with more experimentation, she then finally realized her gift. “I feel I paint more on the ‘old way’ of drag: a lot of powder, and seven different colors for contour. Taking off my makeup takes as much effort as getting to the center of a Tootsie Pop,” she said.
Within no time, she got so popular that she even was featured in the Cosmopolitan magazine before she appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2022.
However, Jasmine wasn’t always into the arts. She was more of an athletic person. She played soccer for eight years, swam and dove for three played lacrosse, and even ran a cross country track.
“But I used to always play in my mom’s makeup and clothes as any drag queen did,” she recalled.
Also, she was often involved with cheerleading at school.
Jasmine Kennedie Family
Jasmine Kennedie comes from a Polish American family of four. She was born to parents, Joy Bell and Rick Koritkowski, and has a sister named Carlee Koritkowski.

As for her mother, Jasmine shared that Joy was the “best mom anyone could ask for.” Also, recalling the time her mother found out that she did drag, Jasmine shared, “She said ‘if you’re going to be a drag queen. you’re gonna be a classy one.’”
