ABOUT AYANA

Ambe J Photography

Ayana has spent a majority of her time living in the beautiful mountains of Colorado and is a mountain

girl #4lyfe. From a young age, her mom realized that all

of her fun and outgoing energy needed to be utilized, 

enrolling her in every dance class possible. From her love

of dance developed a love for storytelling and theatre, which led to a move to the ~semi~ big city to pursue a BFA in Musical Theatre at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Ayana is a current senior, and is preparing for her move to the actual!! big city, where she can’t wait to continue to tell a diverse array of stories.

Ayana is rooted in her belief of making sure all voices are heard and works to create a space for individuals to be seen in the light. She is a firecracker that is willing to face adversity head on, a quality passed down from her badass mama.

When Ayana is not in class or in a performance, you can

find her doing portrait photography, making smoothiesworking out, eating hummus, and obsessing over every dog she sees on the street.
