Jamaica Yancy

Los Angeles, California, Usa

I believe that the world is a happier place when people come together, and I strive to create a sense of community wherever I go. I share my mother's boisterous laugh as well as her petite stature. I believe in giving for the sake of giving... but don't bother asking for any of my Ben and Jerry's peach cobbler ice cream!

A UC Berkeley graduate (go Bears!), I am a lifelong learner, avid traveler, recreational cyclist, Assistant Director of Admissions for an international travel organization, and the proud Founder / Executive Director of Mahogany Philly.

The aim of Mahogany is to educate, entertain, and foster community for women of color. Founded in 2012, Mahogany now has over 1500 members.
