Alana J. Webster
Jacklyn Chung-Young

Alana J. Webster is a fashion and feminism loving native Angeleno who hails from Venice, CA, She is the daughter of an African American retired educator for the Long Beach Unified School District and an African American judge who still works to keep LA's streets clean and safe today. It was through her parents and their colleagues that she received a vital education in African American History and Critical Race Theory. Though she spent her formative years beachside, she received a B.A in Drama (with a minor in Dance) from Ithaca College. Alana has always had a passion for the arts, and when she is not podcasting, she is looking for television shows or doing voice-overs for commercials and radio ads. Simply put, this girl doesn't shut up! Away from the mic, Alana writes for her fashion blog, Renegade of Fun, plays competitive dodgeball, and is a proud pescetarian of almost two decades. Alana and Jacklyn are stoked to apply their gifts of gab to their new podcast, Black and Yellow, and are even more excited to join the ZyteHeist family!

Jacklyn Chung-Young is an LA native born and raised in southern California. Her family is originally from Taiwan and immigrated to Brazil when her mother was just 10 years old. Therefore Jacklyn has spent a lot of time growing up in Brazil visiting family and is fluent in Portuguese. She's been in the arts for majority of her life, dancing and acting since the age of 7. After graduating with a BFA in Acting from AMDA, College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts, she is well on the pursuit of achieving her dreams! Jacklyn loves to be active in life, you'll often hear her talking about cooking at home with her family, working out, taking care of her tortoises, and enjoying what life has to offer her! She is so excited to be co-hosting Black and Yellow with Alana, since she's always loved talking (maybe a little too much) and especially discussing topics that she is passionate about!
