Yanni P.
Yanni is a member of the NYLC who was invited to continue serving during college. 

Yanni is a college freshman at Northeastern University. He became interested in Roots and Shoots way back in middle school when he participated in and soon started running projects such as beach cleanups, recycling collection drives, and volunteer days at local farms and children's hospitals. Now, Yanni is studying Environmental Science and learning how compassionate action for people, animals, and the environment is not just an extra-curricular but a way to live. He has two beloved pets he misses dearly (and frequently visits): Kimi, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and Louis Johnathan the Second, a semi-aquatic turtle.
