Andrew Yang’s High School Yearbook Photo Proves He’s FLY AF

Presidential hopeful Andrew Yang is the real OG of #YangGang, and his recent post on Twitter revealing his old yearbook photos is the latest proof.

Loose, baggy clothes with semi long hair split in the middle are just some of the few fashion trends that young men sported a few decades ago, and Yang, a candidate running for the 2020 United States presidential election, was apparently very much into what was considered hip at the time, judging by the photos he shared on his Twitter on Thursday.

Well it looks like my senior year yearbook photo is about to make the news in a feature about candidates when we were young. Sharing it here so you can see what I was about in 1992,” he wrote, adding that his favorites bands were The Smiths and The Cure.

After discovering the fact that Yang is a fan of The Smiths and The Cure, some fans couldn’t help but ask the 44-year-old American entrepreneur about his favorite albums and songs.

Yang has just bagged a spot at the first Democratic presidential debate following a massive wave of support from individual donors earlier this month. And by the looks of it, he is already set on what he will be talking about in the debate.

Aside from the Universal Basic Income (UBI), which will give all Americans $1,000 monthly, Yang is also planning to make one of the worst days of the year in the United States less taxing.
