A native of Peru, Yenny is of Native American descent and holds citizenship in both Peru and the United States. She has a deep appreciation of her cultural roots, as from a young age, Yenny was immersed in the history of her indigenous people by her grandmother.
“It was my grandmother who taught me about our traditions and resistance as a native population. She would share with me our culture, such as how they lived in the mountains and cultivated the land. Though she is no longer physically here, both her spirit and the lessons she instilled within me remain.” said Yenny.
