Bayana is a writer and content creator born and raised in Oakland, California. She is the co-founder of Black Girls Create and cohost of the #WizardTeam podcast and the Things We Imagine series on YouTube. She is a fierce advocate of critical fandom, the increased representation of Black women in media, time travel, dragons, and avoiding the AI apocalypse. You can generally find her fangirling and agonizing about writing on Twitter at @yanawroteit.
