Jewel Ifeguni

YouMatter Studios
Founder and CEO
Hi! I'm Jewel Ifeguni, Founder and CEO of YouMatter Studios and a Technical PM for Minecraft and alumni of UIUC. I founded YouMatter Studios back in 2017 because I was tired of her sister not seeing representation in games and more importantly media at large. My mission is to continue to use media and technology to build an inclusive world and unapologetically speak up and forefront marginalized voices.  It isn't always easy. I have given a TEDx on Representation, created a short film and produced a 6-time festival award winning VR film , and our studio is set to release our pilot "Why We're Here" a docuseries that is driving the conversation regarding Allyship with Gen Z/Millenials by forefronting black perspectives and inviting others to listen and join in the dialogue so we not only understand why we got here but more importantly where we go from here.
