Jiggy’s search for family

Video posted May 7, 2014 in News by Casie Tennin


Name: Na Eun "Jiggy" Yoon
Originally from Queens, NY

Na Eun "Jiggy" Yoon struggled to fit in with her family. A tomboy and bi-sexual, she describes herself as the black sheep of her family. Her relationship with her mother was difficult, 'toxic' according to Yoon who struggled with isolation and thoughts of suicide. 

For Yoon, RAM Squad was a place to dance and be herself but also a place to be part of a family that supported her in a way her biological family didn't.
