“Yes mate”, is Poonam's mantra, a tongue in cheek motto which embodies her attitude to life - vibrant and full of positivity. This is balanced with an unapologetic love ofcolour, pattern, people, music and deep interest in spirituality. Poonam draws on her Punjabi roots all the while celebrating her South-East London upbringing. YSM8 encourages people to seek out new cultural experiences through food, friendship, and conversation. Come and immerse yourself in an eclectic world, where discovering new tastes and intoxicating sounds will create a feast for all the senses.
