Asha spent her childhood years afraid to let family and peers in. She was afraid to open up and communicate to them her addictions, fears, doubts, insecurities, failures, and pains. She was praised for what could be seen (her academic achievements and involvement with sports and organizations), and out of fear of disappointing people, she internalized her shortcomings and the issues she dealt with. As a result, she went through life masking her emotions, and pretending all was well. She suppressed her truth and suffered in silence because of it.
Writing became her safe place for God had used it to heal her and restore her confidence in her identity, her voice and in her story. She is now committed to creating opportunities for others to learn to embrace and articulate their unique stories and turn their experiences into a transformative book.
