  • “Just finished reading YAM. Best issue yet! And the visuals are amazing; the photo of Jerson Hernandez and Style Watch on the next Page was incredible. Congratulations on making a very good magazine so much better! I have had to rip out 4 pages and put them on my fridge to remind me to buy, or cook things.”
