Thre3peat: the Business Behind the Party

Jasmin and Eli with their game Thre3peat

My husband Eli and I graduated from the University of Waterloo's Honours Arts and Business Co-op program in 2014. We have always been interested in innovation and entrepreneurship so this program suited us very well. While still attending UWaterloo, we played a game that we liked but thought we could make better and more convenient for others to play, so we formed a partnership with Eli's brother, Camren, and his wife, Krissy, to do just that.

While I was a student at UWaterloo, I never considered myself very athletic.  Especially compared to my friends who played on the men's varsity hockey and the swim team. However, I did swim a lot on my own time, and played some intramural sports, including hockey, softball and broomball. During the summer of 1986, I travelled to Dearborn, MI to compete in the U.S. Dwarf games where I competed in both track and swimming.

I have been involved in many battles over the years since I started boxing at the age of 16, but my current battle is one of the fiercest yet. I am a two-time Pan Am Games champion and have won the Canadian National Boxing Title ten times. For the past several months I have been juggling my third year liberal arts studies to try to give back to the community that has supported me in numerous ways.

In September, I was inducted into the Offshore Energy Center (Houston) Hall of Fame as an Industry Pioneer in the areas of deep-water technology and management of major projects. This award has caused me to reflect on just how important the University of Waterloo was to my professional and, indeed, personal life.

The UW Dance Program may be Gone but it Lives On

Blue Ceiling Dance Performance

I started at the University of Waterloo in the fall of 1992 as a young woman who had planned most of her life to become “an artist” and throughout high school had been focused on becoming a concert pianist. Secretly though, I wanted to be a dancer.
