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 Oakland. I left for a while to attend college. Now, im working and trying to grow professionally. I heard about YBB through a friend. After attending a few events, meeting the people, and having a good time, I decided to join. :)

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

I'm a big community person--fight for the cause type of person. lol. I have an affinity for community forums, protests, marches. Very action-oriented activities. I volunteer my time at different events. At the same time, I enjoy art galleries, fairs/festivals, concerts, theater, lounges--somar and new parish are cool. If i'm in great company, I'm having fun.

Why did you join YBB?

I joined to expand my network, have fun, and meet new people. Ultimately, enjoy being a young black professional woman in the Bay Area!!!

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

I think i would write a children's book on black history...

Introduction

Hello YBB! I look forward to meeting all of you at different events. Lets have a good time!
