Ashanti is a Texas native who has worked in the educational field since 2013. She has worked with students from elementary school all the way up to high school. She became a librarian in Texas after a retired librarian convinced her that she would be a great person for the job. She began her international librarian career in 2019 in Tokyo. She has a great love and deep passion for reading. She feels that reading has changed her life and opened doors to extraordinary possibilities that were originally unknown to her. Her hobbies include reading (of course!), travelling, exploring new places, binge watching Netflix shows, and playing with her rabbit Mochi-chan. Ashanti speaks English and Spanish.
