Yanely was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and is one of the first in her family to graduate college. After two decades of school, she still can't believe that she never had a class about making smart money decisions! Now, she's on a mission to help young people learn financial literacy in a fun and engaging way!
After completing Teach For America, Yanely paired her love for teaching with her passion for financial literacy, creating a unique YouTube channel for people to engage with topics like students loans, credit cards, budgeting, investing and saving for retirement.
