To complete our series of introductions to the NBA directors we present Asha…
Singing, poetry and music are a few of Asha’s passions and her idea of a good night is strum away on one of her many guitars and have a good old sing song. Asha loves to write and was first published at the age of 15 by Penguin Press.
Asha has a BA Hons Multimedia Communications and Culture which underpins her work with communities and families which she has been doing for the last ten years in Nottingham and the West Midlands. Through her work Asha assists people from disadvantaged communities by creating holistic community projects.
Asha doesn’t have a favourite food per se as she likes to eat mostly everything. Jollof rice, prawn lasagne, cakes and pastries she loves them all. There are however only a few things she doesn’t like and when she finds out what they are she’ll let you know.
One of the highlights of Asha’s life so far was her visit to Ghana in 2001 where she attended a school and studied with some young women. It was a life changing and humbling experience which she still remembers like it was yesterday.
A good scrounge around charity shop is a something Asha takes quite seriously. She searches for all sorts of odds and ends but in particular buttons which she uses to “jazz up” clothes and also makes brooches and hair clips.
