AYAH is a brave little girl who brings hope to so many children and adults around the world. She showcases that your circumstances need not determine your future. You have the ability to thrive no matter the odds you have had to face. “Representation was also key in creating the character. The face of success and stardom is not and should never have been limited to one skin tone” says Amanda S. Dambuza, Creator of AYAH and author of the book A Brave Girl Named AYAH. AYAH is relatable across genders, races and social standing.
