Stories of her great grandfather, chief Yajaira, and of her grandmother, Flor Emmanuel, winner of the first Miss Venezuela competition in 1946, instilled in Yosuzi a strong emotional tie to her native roots.   

    After receiving her B.A. from Boston University in Sociology, Yosuzi spent the next decade of her career at the intersection of film fashion and advertising as a creative in New York, LA and London where she is now based.
