Emiliano Villa is a multimedia journalist seeped in Oakland culture. Through his training at YR Media, he discovered his love for journalism and realized the power of youth media in addressing inequity. This passion led him to join YR's newsroom, reporting on politics, arts, and queer culture through a youth perspective. His work has been featured on KQED, NPR, SF Chronicle, and the NY Times. When he isn't writing, Emiliano enjoys nature and dancing his heart out to pop music.
