Yesenia (they/them) lives and learns in East Oakland || Huichin, with family roots stretching back to the 70’s. The Pacific Ocean links their folks along the lands of California, México, Tonga, and back. Their experiences as a youth organizer, data nerd, ops wizard, plant guardian, and culture worker form a spider’s web pattern, weaving space for healing and thriving.
They believe that in our bodies and communities, we already hold the answers we seek, and as a budding historyan, they are dedicated to recording and sharing those recipes. Along their path, they’ve come to consider ruby-throated hummingbirds and redwoods as mentors. Yesenia is grateful to contribute to Resonance Network as Program Manager.
