Nereyda “Neddy” Yong is a proud Latina and first generation seminarian at San Francisco Theological Seminary who is passionate about spiritually based social engagement. Her passion is to advance and amplify minoritized voices (especially Latina) in the church and in society at large. She is currently training to become a spiritual director and her focus is to support leaders and activists of color by becoming a presence of passion and peace. You will often find her doing what she loves: meeting new people, enjoying nature, trying new food, dancing, laughing with her family (she has a partner and four beautiful children), and adventuring to new places experiencing first hand the beautiful diversity present in the world.
