“I love to read and I love even more the freedom that a pen and paper allows me to be!”...It is my escape to create the unimaginable through words. ”My thoughts and expressions usually flow much better when I’m writing…but knowing I cannot have conversations with people simply on paper, I’m approachable to talk to as well (lol)!”
Her most important role is shaping the minds of her two young men, Damaris and Dante, ages 12 and 5 respectively. Asha works to leave a legacy for the both of them. ”Our children are always watching what we do, so let us lead with purpose so that they will have the tools to lead us in the future!”
