I am Kohenet/Priestess Angelique “YA” Rivera: Neurodivergent Jewyorican, Poet, and Advocate for Decolonial Liberation but most people call me YA. I’ve experienced my fair share of challenges in life, but I’ve always been driven by a desire/calling to support others in breaking free and breaking down oppressive systems. Through my coaching and consulting business, Priestessing Liberation, I’ve been able to draw on my 25 years of experience to help individuals and organizations heal, reclaim their agency, and work towards a decolonized future.

As a poet, I’ve had the privilege of working with local organizations to teach the power of poetry in healing trauma, particularly in children and teens. I’m proud to say that my poetry classes in county prisons have brought hope and inspiration to countless individuals, and I’m grateful to have been able to make a difference in their lives.

My work in decolonial liberation has also been an importan, challenging traditional paradigms and in-powering communities through my decolonial trainings and workshops is a fierce passion. My extensive experience in trauma awareness, mental health, and decolonial liberation has also led me to be widely respected for my work in decolonizing the practice of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

In addition to my work, I’m a proud mama to two powerhouse comrades who keep me grounded and motivated. When I’m not challenging the status quo, I love nothing more than savoring a slow morning with my beloved cafΓ© or unwinding with a cigar at my favorite spot. My journey as a Kohenet/Priestess, poet, and advocate for decolonial liberation has been a challenging but rewarding one, and I’m excited to see where it takes me next.

with love & devotion,

Kohenet/Priestess Angelique
