She got her start in a Nike Air Jordan commercial directed by Spike Lee at just 12 years old. She then landed a leading role in Lee's short film Jesus Children of America, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2005. Hannah starred in the TNT film special "The Ron Clark Story" as Shameika Wallace, for which she received a Young Artist's Award in 2007. For three years, she traveled between Los Angeles, New York City and Amherst, Massachusetts while playing the part of Camille on TNT's HawthoRNe, and achieving her BA in Theatre and Black Studies at Hampshire College, where she graduated in the Spring of 2013. She achieved a certificate of completion from the William Esper Studio in New York City in 2015, where she studied the Meisner Technique under teacher Bruce McCarty. Other television credits include her recurring role as Lorna on Showtime's Happyish, alongside Steve Coogan, and most recently as guest star, Angel, on SyFy's Happy!.

Hannah is also a writer of poetry, personal essays, plays and screenplays. Some of her essays and interviews can be found on Autostraddle.com where she was a contributing editor in 2015. At Hampshire College, she wrote, directed and performed in a devised ensemble play Looking B(l)ack, based on transcribed interviews with black elders. As she faces a tough industry for women of color, Hannah hopes to broaden the range of stories told on stage and screen through writing her own experience."
