Life and CareerEdit
NAAN was born in Puerto Rico in 1988. She had been involved in comics-making from a young age (with a serious intent of publishing in the business), albeit for her own pleasure. Her first story Legendary Beings Ara & Celi was created when she was 12-13 years old and it is this which she decided to make her first webcomic in 2006. She had started another webcomic in 2007 but due to time restraints and quality issues, NAAN stopped updating it and took it off the web in hopes of publishing it as a proper graphic novel someday.
She moved to Iowa in 2006. In 2011, NAAN graduated Cum Laude with a double B.A in Linguistics with Russian Studies and German from Iowa State University. She was also a member of the university's Honors Program. NAAN speaks Spanish, English, German and Russian. From 2001-2003 she taught herself basic Japanese and is considering taking up the task again. She has been mainly influenced by anime and manga, and has no shame in admitting it.
