Tell us about yourself. Where are you from? How did you hear about YBB? Feel free to include links to your Twitter, Facebook, blog, etc. to help us learn about you!

I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. I am currently a PhD student, Jamaican caterer, and entrepreneur. I heard of YBB from several of my friends that have went to several of the past meet ups.

In general, what kinds of activities do you like? What, if any, are your favorite local venues?

I love listening to live music and dancing. I really like social networking gatherings because I love to talk to people. I love hanging out in the downtown San Francisco area in addition to the Lake Merritt area in Oakland.

Why did you join YBB?

To meet and network with other black professionals in the area.

For fun: If you were to write a book what would it be about?

If I had to write a book for fun I would write a children's book that would be centered around African American youth.


My name is Shani! I am business woman who works hard but loves to have fun when I have time :)
