My name is Dayna Haffenden and I am a multimedia journalist.
I am a dedicated professional with more than six years of experience covering and creating content.
My background lies in researching, editing, social media, public speaking, meeting deadlines and more. Regardless of the hat that I’m wearing at the time, I aim to create content that is able to resonate with a wide-range audience.
Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of working for
XXL Magazine, Vibe Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, Emmis Communications’ Hot 97 and more. On my self-titled website (daynamariejournalist.com), I conduct and transcribe interviews with a variety of talent.
Regardless of my environment, my goal is to inspire, learn and create. My proven work ethic and determination to stay aware of today’s cultural and political issues has allowed me to gain a worldly perspective. I am someone who believes that "CAN'T" lives on "WON'T" street.
Currently, I am working as a freelance news writer for XXL Magazine. I am currently seeking a full-time position in New York City.
