Standing at 5'2, Yarelyn doesn't allow her small stature to define her. A future teacher with great life and fashion advice. Read a bit more about Yarelyn below.
When scrolling through your Instagram I really liked how you dressed but couldn't put you into a category of which trend you fall in. You have a little bit of everything going on. How would you describe your style?
What I wear and how I style myself for the day all depends on my mood. Primarily, I'll say my style is somewhere between bohemian and casual wear. Don't get me wrong, I definitely have my really feminine days but I also have moments where I'll choose sweats over a skirt.
Throughout the years would you say your style has changed a great deal?
Oh man,(laughing)back in junior high I didn't care about my style. I wasn't crazy about shopping so I'd let my mom do all the shopping and matching for me. Keeping up to date with trends was not a priority of mine. My junior year of high school is when I decided to start putting an effort towards my outfits. I started coordinating outfits, seeing what tops and bottoms looked well together without over doing it. Also, I have always been petite. Till this day I'm still learning what clothing compliments my body well and, doesn't make me look like SpongeBob or a stick figure.
What advice would give to someone who wants to experiment with their style?
I say wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, do whatever you want. Make sure when experimenting that your personality is reflected through what you're wearing, don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. You won't know how you'll look in a maxi dress if all you wear is jeans and tees. Personally I love to experiment with my hair. I think I have dyed my hair every color possible. If you want to experiment with your hair, make sure you go to someone who knows what they're doing so you don't regret it.
Say you can only wear one piece of clothing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
OK So I have an outfit, I can't stick to one piece. I would wear black and white Adidas track pants paired with an American Apparel cross back body suit. Very cut yet cozy at the same time.
 For big night out, what would wear?
I love dressing up. Definitely a dress that hugs my body (length depending on the event) with some nice heels. You'll never catch me outside without a watch, so I'll need that for sure. Finish the outfit off with a few more accessories and clutch.
Do you have a piece of clothing you dream of owning?
Yes, a Michael Costello Dress
What was the last thing you bought?
I recently got back from a trip to the Dominican Republic. I bought 3 dresses for the trip prior to leaving but, I didn't have a chance to wear them because I brought too many clothes with me.

As a college student and working woman living in New York City I assume you're running all over the place. What are three things that someone will always catch you with no matter what you're doing and where you're going? 
I am! You'll always find me roaming around with my phone, wallet, and lotion tucked away in my bag.

What gets you up in the morning? 
God, being blessed with another day and making sure I do something useful & productive.
The thought of "You're in your 20s so you should have or be in the process of getting your life together."
"Do your future self a favor and work hard now" is what I always think of, when I need that extra boost of motivation.
The responsibilities of my family also gets me going, a better life for them and for me
What's your proudest moment?
Receiving my associate degree, my highest degree as of right now.
Music you can't stop listening to?
 Acquainted x The Weeknd
Scholarships x Drake & future
Nothing but trouble x Lil' Wayne & Charlie Puth
Knowing what you know today, what advice would you give your younger self?
Advice I'll give my younger self is making sure she understands the importance of school. I would tell her to take school more serious and how passing by a thread isn't exactly the best way to pass and/or be proud of. To give school your all because everything you do in school affects you in the long run. I could've been done with college but I decided to take it easy; if I had applied myself in high school I would have greater college options. 
Overall, stop the procrastination. Stop the laziness

Finally, wild wish?
Wish to see myself on a billboard modeling, one can dream.
