Described by Latina Magazine as “…beautiful, brilliant and the new face of the Latino millenial” Yarel Ramos lights up the screen with a superb cross section of entertainment, music, news, lifestyle and social media. As the host of Reventón con Yarel, she invited mun2’s hip bi-cultural audience to share insightful interviews and special presentations as she showcased the most essential chart topping music. Now as the host of Universo Now and Universo Rex on NBC Universo – she is the face of the entertainment, lifestyle and music template for NBC Universo.
Education and philanthropy are front and center in Yarel’s life. She is currently studying for a Master’s Degree at the University of Southern California and is heavily involved in organizations that are near and dear to her heart. She is an active board member of Corazón de Vida, a non-profit volunteer organization that provides support for the homeless and abandoned children of Baja, Mexico. She is a co-founder of RAYO (repartiendo amor y oportunidas) a non- profit organization based in Los Angeles whose main goal is to provide resources and tools for Latino students to reach higher education. Yarel was recently honored by the Hispanic Womens Corporation with their National HWC Youth Leadership Award, commemorating her support of the community and her culture. She also recently hosted the Influencer Summit in Miami – being considered an influencer on all social media and digital platforms.
In addition to her NBC Universo on-air duties Yarel has been an in-demand, on-air host across the NBC-Universal family, including E! Latino, Telemundo and MSNBC. Yarel has proven time and again that whether it’s hosting the Alma Awards or covering the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, her voice is equal parts unique and representative of the fastest growing population in the United States.
The duality of her identity: being both a first generation Mexican-American and a true “Angelena” have defined a powerful emerging consciousness making her the quintessential example of what it means to be a Latino millennial.
