Meet Aya & Alycia

Howdy, I’m Aya. When I’m not hanging out in my Hogwarts painting,  you can find me writing a myriad of thrilling articles for NewPrensa. As a second-generation Minnesotan resident with Nigerian roots, I was rarely exposed to positive stories with people who had similar backgrounds as me. NewPrensa is my chance to curate local BIPOC news for folks who are looking for a different perspective here in Minnesota.

Outside of NewPrensa, you can find me on the trails camping, hiking, or mountain biking. Playing guitar, or curled up reading a book.

Bitmoji if Aly
Hi, I’m Alycia, communications specialist at NewPublica and half of Aya & Aly. I co-write NewPrensa and work on a variety of other projects at NewPublica. Growing up as a white presenting Puerto Rican woman who also identifies as a lesbian, representation was hard for me to find. With no intention to speak for or represent all people, I look forward to the opportunity to continue to bring BIPOC focused, local news to members of the Twin Cities community.
 
When I’m not working on NewPrensa, you might find me on a field coaching lacrosse, whipping up a vegan dish, tie dying in my backyard or digging through racks at a thrift store.
