My name's Yessenia Funes. I'm a New York-based journalist. Brooklyn to be exact with Salvi roots and a Long Island upbringing.
I'm not your average journalist, though: I'm Latina. I'm queer. And I report on race and the environment almost exclusively. (Anything race-related though, count me in.)
I write poetry for fun and dream of writing children's books. I currently cover the environmental justice beat for Earther, a recently launched Gizmodo Media Group news site all about the environment. But def holla if you need an environmental justice speaker for your conference panel or school event.
