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

i like to dance, go for happy hour, horseback riding, movies, cooking, just relaxing with people that are postively vibed

Why did you join YBB?

i honestly felt it was something that i could relate to as i am a young black woman in the bay area it seemed both intriguing and intresting so i decided to check it out

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

My life i feel it will inspire black women like myself that no matter what we go through we should not let the negative aspect of our lives define who we are and we should not be an american sterotypical statistic but better and improve ourselves with each mistake, joy, glory, saddness, betryal, happiness to become strong and independent having learn from life's experiences as i have to say am still standing is wonderful for me or any black person to say at the end of day is all so much rewarding.


My name is Mayen . i am 25 years old . i love life so why not enjoy it

What Mayen E. is saying about this Meetup Group

It's ok the organizers Astrid and Courtney as well as a few people were great but it could be a lot. more fun if the older members of the group shuffled around to hangout with as much people as they could after all we are here to socialize with people not divided into cliques but apart from that it is okay :-)
