Yvette is an L.A. native, a curly girl advocate and a first generation Latina working toward female empowerment through her writing and her artwork. She’s passionate about art, politics, tech, intersectional women’s issues and smacking down haters on Instagram. When she’s not typing away in front of a computer screen you’ll find her re-watching Atlanta & Bob’s Burgers, dancing to reggaeton and playing with her three foster bunnies: Basil, Alfalfa & Art Vandelay.
