Hello! I’m Anika AKA Pixie.

A writer of words. A dancer of dreams. An author, podcaster, and lecturer studying the intersections of pop culture and mental health. A feminist and a fashionista. A teacher and a student. Social Justice Magical Girl. Bohemian revolutionary. Secretly a dragon.

Anika Dane (she/her) is a self-proclaimed manic pixie dream girl and doesn’t see anything wrong with it.
