Who do you look up to most/ who is your role model?
I look up to so many different people, but my role model would be Sheila E. Lewis! She is an African American Entrepreneur, a marketer by trade. She follows her dreams and lives fearlessly. She does this all in Stilettos! She is a fabulous leader and runs a very successful firm. I want to be like her when I grow up! Check out Ashton212.com, to learn more about her.
Number one place you’ve always wanted to travel to or have traveled to? Why is it number one?
The number one place I want to travel to is Ghana. Being a decedent of African’s who were a part of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, and having my culture and heritage stolen from me, I’ve longed to have a link to my original ancestors. From my research, I’ve found that most African’s who were enslaved are originally from the Western Coast of Africa, and most went through the doors of no return in Ghana. I hope that touching this soil brings be closer to my finding myself.
What is one of the most embarrassing things you have ever done?
One of the most embarrassing things I’ve ever done was fall down the stairs at Kaiser after a doctor’s appointment. I was looking at my phone as I was walking down the stairs, and completely missed a step and tumbled down quite a few stairs. Not to mention the fall was loud.
What is your favorite color? How does it describe you?
My favorite color is Purple! Purple is associated with royalty, of which describes my ancestors. Purple symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. These are all attributes that describe me.
Favorite movie of all time?
My favorite movie of all time is Crooklyn, by Spike Lee. I could watch this movie over and over again.

Favorite music artist?
What would you tell your 13-year-old self? Why?
I would tell by 13-year-old self that you’re good enough, smart enough, pretty enough. You are enough just as you are, and don’t let anyone define your life. Do what you want to do and be confident in your decisions. I think these are important things to hear as a child, because I didn’t pursue a lot of things that I wanted to do at a young age, because of my fear of failure and rejection.
If you could relive one moment in your life what would it be? Why?
If I could relive one moment in my life if would be the moment I selected a college because I should have followed my heart.
Do you have any regrets in your life, if so list one. Explain why you regret it. If not, explain why you have no regrets.
