M.Ed., University of Florida, 2011
Ayana Olatunji is a Crescent City native who earned her B.A. in English with a concentration in writing from Loyola University New Orleans. She then went on to receive a master's degree in English Education from the University of Florida. Following a brief stint in teaching, she worked at various non-profits around the country dedicated to underserved students. But after living in cities all over America, she realized there’s no place like home and ultimately found her way to UNO. In her free time, Ms. Olatunji can usually be found working on her first novel, trying every sno-ball stand around town, or binge-watching documentaries on PBS.
