Happy Birthday, Aisha!
Posted On June 15, 2019
It’s June 15, which means…it’s Aisha’s birthday! ?????
Here’s the thing: we know the Winx fandom will make this day about her love interests, especially Nabu. But today has nothing to do with Nabu, Roy, or Nex. It’s all about her.
My question today is: What do you like about Aisha?
Borrowing the words of Brian W. Foster, part of the Critical Role staff: “Characters who aren’t a mess aren’t interesting to me.” I feel that way, too, so that’s why I love Aisha and her story. She is a mess sometimes. None of the Winx have struggled with as much emotional trauma as she has. Her story has also been the most unpredictable; no season is ever the same for her.
But that’s how life is. It’s random and overwhelming, and like the waves Aisha controls, it’s full of high and lows. But it keeps moving, so you have to go with the flow.
Aisha embodies the meaning of her name — “life” — beautifully. She’s not perfect or invincible, but she’s brave and resilient. It’s inspiring to watch her overcome so many obstacles, and it makes the happy moments in her life even more meaningful.
Happy Birthday, Fairy of Waves!
