Get To Know The Soa Brand Newest Intern



My name is Aiyana Parks. I was born and raised in the “Peach State” aka Georgia. I am currently a junior at the illustrious Spelman College. While at Spelman, I am majoring in English in hopes of becoming a journalist. As a young girl I became fascinated with reading magazines such as Seventeen, Essence, and Oprah. Although you are probably wondering why was I even reading the following, I noticed that some magazines lacked the ability to relate to young African American girls. Therefore, I decided to major in English in order to one day create magazines, where young African American girls, can eventually view magazines and feel loved, inspired, and beautiful.

Furthermore, as I work towards fulfilling this dream I am also serving the youth by teaching English Language Arts this summer to 8th grade students through a program called Breakthrough Atlanta. I am an avid believer of finding my purpose and using it to help others. Whether I am studying abroad, spending quality time with family or friends, or serving my community I am seizing every opportunity life throws at me.

Lastly, I am so exited and blessed that you all get to follow me on this amazing journey as the newest addition and assistant Storyteller for The Soa Brand. In similarity to Shawntel, I believe that apart of my purpose “is to inspire others,” and this is only the beginning.
