We at Matlock feel it is vital to engage students who are working their ways up to become young, budding professionals. With that being said, we would like to introduce you to our new intern, Asha Haki-Tyler. Asha is a sophomore at Boston University earning her degree in Mass Communications with a concentration in public relations. Here we go – Meet Asha!
Where are you from?
Born and raised in Atlanta, although spent one year in Tucson, Arizona.
Do you have any pets?
No, I am terrified of animals!!
Who is your favorite superhero/heroine?
Wonder Woman – I love the way she is dressed. Her outfit is really cool!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
I would live in Port Vila, Vanuatu. Since childhood I have always had an infatuation with geography, and upon discovering the pacific islands, I fell in love with them, but specifically Vanuatu. Although they survive on tourism, the islands are generally “untouched” by the world’s conventions and assimilation, and the landscape is beautiful!
What is your dream job?
To own and operate a successful Fashion Publicity Agency, that specializes in increasing the brand of specifically “up-and-coming” fashion houses and/or designers. I also want to establish an arts education nonprofit that targets “at-risk” preschoolers, increasing their aptitude and preparedness for elementary school and eventually post-secondary endeavors, through implementing and emphasizing a love and skill for visual, performing and/or literary arts.
Do you have any favorite sports teams? If so , who?
I LOVE the Lakers with a healthy passion. My mother is from Los Angeles, so it is in my blood. I also like The Chicago Bulls, because of my “crush” on Derrick Rose.
What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas. I love the fact that this holiday always brings together all my family, and forces everyone into a happy mood. And the food my aunt cooks is delicious, always.
