Ayana is a comics and graphic novel analyst. She believes that comic books are a storytelling medium that shouldn't be deemed as juvenile, because most comics comment on and present very mature themes. After reading a comic, she goes on to explain the significance of the major themes presented within the story.
Her work can be found on "Black Girl Nerds," "Do You Even Comic Book?!," "Women Write About Comics," and on her own blog, "ComixBawse."
Ayana is skilled in conducting interviews and transcribing them into article format. She has experience writing both comic and film reviews. She also has copyediting and SEO optimization experience.
This fall she will be beginning her M.S. degree program in Publishing at Pace University in New York City. Her goal is to one day own a publishing house that is dedicated to publishing comics that spark discussions about sexual politics, race, gender, and sexuality.
In her spare time, she likes to cosplay her favorite comic book, movie, and anime characters! She also enjoys crafting the perfect Instagram caption to go with each photo!
