A Little About Yas
"Hi I'm Yas! I was born and raised in sunny Boca Raton/Delray Beach, Florida. I went to the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign because I love freezing to death. I worked at Campus Ink as a student designer from 2016 until I graduated in 2019 with a degree in Advertising and a minor in Psychology. From there, I moved to the exciting city of Chicago and my life has been non-stop ever since..."

Q & A with Yas
On one end of the spectrum, I decompress by grabbing some wine and watching a really good show on my couch. On the other end, I love going dancing with my friends or even going for a run. Loud music and good endorphins are always a sweet solution to stress.
What is one fact that people would be surprised to learn about you?
I guess an interesting fact about me is that I collect Vintage University of Illinois gear! If I'm gonna be a sweatshirt-aholic, might as well make it fun.

What’s your favorite place in Chicago?
My favorite place in Chicago is my home in the Gold Coast neighborhood. I have a lovely view of the Mag Mile skyscrapers and the lake; which grounds me (Lake Michigan is my fake ocean) and also reminds me that the sky is the limit.
What's your favorite food?
Cheeseburgers + Birthday Cake. All day.
