Hi I’m Christie🤭 I’m from Haiti I’m 16 years old I’m a junior in high school. I like braiding, I like watching criminal documentary shows, and I love swimming but I don’t know how to. I love documenting my life through photos and videos I love my family and friends. I would say people describe as calm cool collected and smart.
Growing up around California, returned to the tristate area and continued my studies with the University of Rhode Island, Universidad de La Habana, and Northumbria University. After working in community development globally for five years, I developed a passion for nonprofit service in collaboration with youth. In my spare time you can find me rock climbing, facilitating birth education workshops, teaching myself to bake, or hanging with my cat. I love YIA because I can meld all of my experience and work from a place of joy.
Hiii!! My name is Philina Bueh I use they/she pronouns and I am a Junior at Classical High School. I was born and raised here in Providence, Rhode Island and during my free time I enjoy journaling, going to the park, reading, and listening to music. I also love spending time with my friends by watching movies, playing games, and talking/catching up. Listening, observing, leadership, adaptability and emotional intelligence are some of the qualities I like to think I have.
I’m an upcoming content creator and entrepreneur.
