Yami Velazquez

she/her/hers


Yamilet (she/her) who goes by Yami, is from Carbondale, CO where she was born and raised. She absolutely loves the energy from LGBTQ community as it makes her feel at home. When Yami felt lost, she found a small group in her high school where she realized that although we are all different, the same ambition to be who we are is carried. Yami loves making people feel welcomed and know that they BELONG, because everybody belongs. She is really thankful to be in the council because it allows youth to see problems and realize that they can be the change. Overall, Yami has been through a roller coaster and there are many more bumps to come, but she knows that she is not alone. She wants youth to remember that this council is here for them, and that we hear you!
