Yayi is an environmentalist and photographer in New York City. Having interest in science and the arts is what led her to focus on eco-spirituality and ecofeminism concepts, thus allowing her to make the connection between the body and mind within nature as a form of photographic therapy. Her work has been featured at Queens Museum, Greenpoint Gallery, and various events around NYC. 

Yayi is an advocate for food and water holding a B.A.S. degree in Urban Sustainability with a concentration in Environmental Science from City University of New York Brooklyn College.

Currently, she is an Environmental Educator at NYCH2O leading water ecology tours for all age groups.  She also worked as an Organizer for Food & Water Action helping to engage young voters in the 2018 New York State elections with a victorious win for State Senator Jen Metzger.

Her hobbies include: painting, photography, and dabbling in a new small business venture called Truffling Yayi (an edible based company focusing to help those in need of medicinal cannabis treats).
