“Ayanna is a natural performer and educator. She inspires her audiences and students alike with her passion for music and poetry. Her workshops are hands-on and thought provoking. She makes creative writing and poetry accessible and enjoyable allowing participants to stretch their potential” -Elizabeth M. Peterson, arts integration specialist, theinspiredclassroom.com
“Ayanna volunteered to teach and mentor teens during the “Phenomenal Woman Project” hosted by Arts In Reach. Ayanna was committed herself to the program for two years in a row, and not only served the youth well, but helped our organization make positive connections in the community. She is a wonderful educator. What is most obvious is not only her abilities as teacher, but her desire to make a real, positive difference in the world around her. This is a rare gift.”
-Shannon Marshall, Program Director of Arts In Reach (AIR)
As my mentor, Ayanna’s endless encouragement and good-natured challenges to help me fine-tune my skills made a world of difference to my writing and performance. Her sincere passion for what she does and her astounding talent both sparked my interest, and having her to look up to has had an immense effect on my poetry and my life.
