Meet Boston Youth Poet Laureate Finalist Yolanda Oliviera

Hi, my name is Yolanda Silva Oliveira! I was born in Boston, MA, but spent most of my childhood in my family's home country, Brazil. Most of my work involves the celebration of culture and language. I’m currently a freshman at Tufts University. I'm also actively working with the Boston Public Library Services, hosting poetry workshops for children around the city.
