J’na Jefferson is a journalist and creative from New Jersey who is living and working in NYC. She completed her undergraduate career at Rider University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and a minor in Digital Media Studies (Radio/Television/Film). During her time in undergrad, she explored several courses related to journalism code and ethics, and found a particular interest in minority studies in American music and popular culture during her senior year.

As a journalist whose work has been featured on sites such as VIBEBillboard, The Recording Academy, Playboy, BET, Paper and XXL, J'na has provided commentary on music, culture and society through long-form features, research-driven cultural analysis and red carpet interviews. She has spoken with musicians from Chance The Rapper to Sting, to social justice activists such as #MeToo founder Tarana Burke and #MuteRKelly co-creator Oronike Odeleye.

J'na also spearheads various types of original content. She is the creator, host and editor of VIBE Vixen's Boss Talk podcast, where she interviews notable cis, queer, trans and female-identifying individuals on their unique stories. In January 2019, she began DOPEisman online platform dedicated to showcasing several "dope" cis, queer and trans women in various industries.

(Her name is pronounced like Dana with a J. We know you were wondering.)
