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!

Proud Haitian-American, went to Penn for undergrad, living in the Bay since 2005. I'm juggling work as a fundraiser and a part-time MBA. I heard about YBB from a member who encouraged me to join. Took me a minute, but I'm glad I did!

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

Yoga, hiking, running, dancing, game nights, reading/book clubs. I'm a fan of San Pedro Square Market in SJ.

Why did you join YBB?

There seems to be quite a bit of overlap between YBB, Onyx, and East Bay Black Professionals as far as membership goes, so I figured it was worth it to expand my options in terms of fun activities.

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

My life story and personal philosophy, but I don't know if I'd publish it.


I'm a Brooklyn native looking to escape San Jose and make friends around the Bay.
