Ayana Herndon is a journalist, New York City native and Aquarius.

Ayana Herndon is a young journalist whose passion for writing spans beauty, fashion, entertainment, and wellness. Previously, she was a trending news writer at Women's Wear Daily, writing everything from celebrity interviews to evergreen stories. While earning her bachelor’s degree in magazine journalism from the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, Ayana has written for POPSUGAR, The Odyssey Online, and Cafe Mom, with stories shining a light on underrepresented audiences in digital media. 

Writing for as long as I can remember, my obsession with magazines and digital media (from Highlights to Teen Vogue to Essence) has fueled my passion. As a New York City native and a curious Aquarius, I'm an emerging writer who encompasses a fresh perspective for creativity, initiative, and a strong work ethic in a fast-paced environment.
