Ayann'ah Batiste

Grant Writer/Researcher
My name is Ayann’ah Batiste, and I am an aspiring historian who loves music, creating art, and reading webtoons in my spare time. I recently graduated from the University of Houston-Downtown last December receiving a bachelor’s in history and a minor in religious studies. After traveling to the Louvre Museum for my high school trip, I decided to become a historian. However, with more research, I realized my true passion is to become a museum curator. This in turn would take me down a path toward non-profit organizations and valuable skills essential such as grant writing. As a result, I’m currently interested in redeveloping my writing, research, and communication skills.
