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'm a proud Kenyan who's been living in the U.S for about 15 years. I enjoy meeting new people and creating memorable experiences. I was introduced to YBB from a similar group on Meetup called Onyx.

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

I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, bike riding, swimming, etc. I also enjoy listening to live bands, watching plays and going out to different lounges in the East Bay.

Why did you join YBB?

To meet people who have similar interests

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

Experiences I've had working and trying to find success as a Black woman in the corporate world.


Hi there! I'm a young professional woman who lives in the East Bay looking to meet and network with people who share similar backgrounds and interests.
