About Akilah Hughes

Mixing social commentary with wry, sarcastic humor, Brooklyn-based Akilah Hughes has taken the experience of training with UCB and writing for MTV and translated it into her popular YouTube channel. She entertains her 123K subscribers with videos that cover everything from “Intersectionality in Feminism” (and how pizza is the perfect metaphor for it) to her “Tipsy Book Reviews” of titles like Green Eggs and Ham and Fifty Shades of Grey. She also spoofs all things pop culture, whether it’s being “Instagram Single,” commenting on the ridiculous coverage of millennials in The New York Times, or acting as a little-seen character in Stranger Things. If you’re looking for forward-thinking laughs, you need Akilah, Obviously.
