Jasmina Kuhnke

is a German writer, actress, author and activist. Kuhnke's debut novel "Schwarzes Herz" (Black Heart) is a bestseller. The semi-autobiographical book recounts her experience growing up on the outskirts of the Ruhr region in Germany in the '90s and how she grappled with racism. 

She has also penned the award-winning "Andere Eltern", a mockery about parents starting a private kindergarten and "Carolin Kebekus Show's" racism special, which won a Grimme-Preis Award.

Beyond her work as a writer, Kuhnke has made a name for herself as an anti-racism activist. 

She notably founded the SHEROES Fund in 2021.
