Cherry Blossom Festival
Introducing Jimi Porter,
Kentucky's 2023 Cherry Blossom Princess!
Each year, we sponsor one candidate to represent Kentucky in the annual National Conference of State Societies Cherry Blossom Festival. This year's Cherry Blossom Princess Program kicks off on April 9.
My name is Jimi Porter and I am 22 years old. I am a current graduate student at the University of Louisville obtaining my Master of Science in Business analytics degree. I graduated from UofL in 2022 with five bachelors degrees in Computer Information Systems (Business Process Management, Cybersecurity, Data Analytics, and Web Development) and Marketing, and held various on campus positions and roles such as being a Cardinal Host for the Presidents Office and being a Diversity Student Ambassador for the Office of Admissions.
I currently work at GE Appliances as a Business System Analyst in the Digital Leadership Development Program. And in my free time I volunteer at Lifeline Center where I help package meals for those in need! It’s a passion of mine to ensure basic needs are met and guaranteed for all people!
