About YaYa

THE COLLEGE UNGRAD was born out of a desperation and need to express get outside of my own head.  I have never been one to conform well, and I am in my mid-thirties and still can’t figure out what I want to be when I grow up.  I am constantly telling people that life is about the journey.  Asking why we work for 40+ years to finally enjoy the “golden years”.  My goal is to help others see the flip side of the coin, and in the process, get all of these ideas and thoughts out of my head and out to the masses.


I believe in making the best of what you have and living fearlessly.  I don’t want to look back 20 years from now and say “Man, I wish I had done ________”.


Here’s the story of me, YaYa.


In February 2016 my nephew was born. I was in love with my little Hollywood, but bummed I didn’t have a unique name (Aunt Jamie isn’t very hip and I was determined to be the “cool” aunt).
While briefly throwing around names like Moonpie, SweetT and others I settled on YaYa when this was sent to me (I do not know the original author, but if you do, I will happily credit them).


What Does Name “Yaya” Mean
You have a strong need for freedom – physical, mental and spiritual. You hate bondage in any form. You have love of beauty and philosophy, and you desire achievement. You are willing to take spiritual matters on faith instead of subjecting them to mental analysis.You are inventive, intuitive and extremely methodical. Since your will is so strong, you are hard to convince. You also dislike advice. You love beauty and philosophy, and you desire achievement. You have a strong need for freedom – physical, mental and spiritual. You are very intuitive. You have a reservoir of inspired wisdom combined with inherited analytical ability, which could reward you through expressions of spiritual leadership, business analysis, marketing, artistic visions, and scientific research. Operating on spiritual side of your individuality can bring you to the great heights, and drop you off if you neglect your spiritual identity. You are always looking for an opportunity to investigate the unknown, to use and show your mental abilities, to find the purpose and meaning of life. You want to grow wise and to understand people and things. You need privacy to replenish your energy. You have a unique way of thinking, intuitive, reflective, absorbing.


So that was it. YaYa was officially born (which by the way was what I called one of my great-aunts growing up).


I wear many hats, and have many hobbies.  I love everything about business, marketing and photography.  I have  a gypsie spirit and love to travel.  I am me, you are you, and I would love to help you find your place in the world as well.  Join me on this journey to discovering who I really am, maybe you will find yourself along the way.
