My name is Sonia Yamilex Mata but I go by Yalmie on my social media. I am originally from Los Angeles County in California.
I received my B.A. in Theatre Arts with a concentration in Dance from Sonoma State University. I spent five years living in the North Bay of California before moving to New York.
I moved to New York two weeks after my graduation and now live on Long Island. I am currently pursuing my M.A. in Higher Education Administration at Stony Brook University.
