my name is asha swann. i'm a 24-year-old creator. mostly i write about women, sustainability, politics, human rights, books, '90s trends, veganism, and sometimes travel. my writing is generally conversational, and i love some em dashes and oxford commas.
right now i'm pursuing a bachelor of journalism degree at toronto metropolitan university (formerly known as ryerson) with a double minor in ethics and english. i was the 2022 recipient for the emerge media awards in the best editorial category.
i was a nonfiction writing counsellor at the young writers initiative during the summer of 2021, and that's probably the project i've been most proud of.
i recently completed an internship for brightly about all things sustainable and eco-friendly, but i've also written for her campus, juven press, style canada, nuvo magazine, next big thing, and more.
all i've ever wanted to do is create something authentic.
this photo and the one on my homepage were both taken by ness devos in toronto.
