Meet the fellow
YELP taught me how to identify and also deal with life’s barriers. I have been reflecting on that one text, ‘Identify a wall in your life and break it before you can focus on the other’. The YELP fellowship provided a platform to meet a crowd of like-minded people, I think it is a package of transformative life lessons summarized in one year.
