Meet YPBlogSpot’s Very Own
Distinguished Gentlemen of YPBlogSpot
We are four friends, Young Professionals, all college graduates seeking success and all that accompanies it even the life lessons learned along our journey whether it’s together or within our individual lives. We grew up in South Jersey in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey about 10 minutes from Philadelphia, PA where we all attended and graduated high school together. We all have similar and different stories to share with the world so without further ado, introducing YPDSing, YPJimH, YPRichB & YPRuck aka the creators of and gentlemen behind YPBlogSpot.
YPDSing was born in Voorhees, NJ and was raised in Pennsauken, NJ. He started playing organized sports when he was 7yrs old and went on to play collegiate football for Delaware State University. Upon Graduation in 2006, he began employment in the Sales-Workforce. He plans on continuing his work as a sales professional, for the next couple of years. During this time, he will be getting together his ‘business savings fund’ and once monetary goals are reached, he plans to open up a specialized training facility. The goal is not only to get ‘YoungProfessionals’ in shape, but also to motivate and encourage them in business ventures and life itself. All the while, the YoungProfessionals brand will continue to grow in popularity and worldwide exposure.
Additionally he is very interested in becoming an overall better person and mentor to the younger generation. With many younger cousins following in his footsteps, he’d like to be able to pass on knowledge about sports, business, and life in general to them. Getting together with friends to laugh and make fun of any and everything is one of his favorite activities. Relaxing and watching good television shows and good movies is another favored activity. All in all, YPDSing is a pretty laid back and focused ‘YoungProfessional.’ YPs Stand Up!!!
YPJimH was born in Lower East Side Manhattan, in New York City. When he was 8 years old, his family moved to Pennsauken New Jersey in search of a better life, mostly because of the rapid rise in violence during the early 90’s in New York City. He graduated Rutgers University in 2005, with a Bachelor of Arts degree. After working as a Youth Program Coordinator in Philadelphia, and then as a Youth Program Director in NYC, he has decided to pursue his Masters degree full-time, starting in September 2010.
In his spare time, he very much enjoys spending quality time with family and friends. He loves traveling to new places, learning new cultures, and conversing with good people. He also enjoys sports in general, but particularly basketball and snowboarding. He also enjoys reading, going to restaurants, and trying different cuisines.
His career goals include working with youth, and developing a program to improve the lives of teens in the inner city. While focusing on building the YP brand, YPJimH is also very interested in pursuing his own business in the future, whether it is a restaurant, sports club, or another venture that he is passionate about!
Born and raised in Southern New Jersey, YPRichB attended Rutgers University (Camden Campus) where he graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. Currently he is a Human Resources Manager at a non-profit organization. Outside of work interests, YPRichB is a huge music fan. The love from music stems from his older brother’s large music (hip-hop/r&b) collection which he would rummage through whenever he had a chance. In addition to listening to music, he is also into music production and making beats. Outside of music you can catch YPRichB at the gym or cheering on his favorite Philadelphia sports teams (Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, Flyers). Career aspirations include seeing YPBlogSpot reach the highest of heights and starting a business venture involving music.
Ruck was born in Philly and raised in Jersey. The eldest of his siblings which includes two younger brothers. YPRuck attended Rutgers University (Camden Campus) where he played four years of Division III basketball and earned his bachelors of science from the School of Business majoring in accounting. Currently, YPRuck is working in the billing office of a telecommunications company but is pondering on the idea of pursuing his masters and/or MBA to further his education and career. He has aspirations to be his own boss and maybe a personal trainer as well. Ruck is a YP that loves to workout, play basketball, tennis and enjoys bowling as well. He also loves music and listens to music regardless of what he’s doing and I mean everything he does. YPRuck is a die hard New York Giants fan, a trait he inherited from his father at very young age. He is also a Kobe fan and believes when Kobe retires he will be the Greatest Of All Time which always sparks an argument with MJ fans.
