I was born and raised in Queens, NY, I've been out here for a little over a year now for work. I found out about YBB through a friend, I'm just trying to take full advantage of what it means to be a black professional in the Bay Area.
Anything to stay active more or less. Hanging out with friends, playing basketball, etc. etc., the general stuff. I've caught a bit of a charity bug since I moved out here though, I'm finding myself using my well earned opportunity in life to help others.
I joined to meet people, network within a niche community that is as rare as it is intriguing. There are many a black professional that feel like they're the only one that's making it in a city like this, and its good to know that groups like YBB allow all of us to meet up for a change.
Not sure yet... I gotta make sure its something that somebody else actually wants to read lol
