Waddup Stereotype and Co!? I'm Ashlee, 26 years old, born in Sunset, Brooklyn and raised in Park Hill, Staten Island. I guess I can say I wasn't like the other kids from birth since my mom decided to spell my name with two E's. I'm not like the other kids because I have a talent that's almost unbelievable. Anything I see, I turn into art. Even the trials and tribulations of life, all the twists and turns... are art. And they've created me. I've been through a lot and you may not be able to tell right away because of my undeniable bubbly personality and bright aura... But that's because I know what it's like to feel extremely low. Thus I'd rather spread goodness and kindness. I vent through my art, specifically lettering. I've always loved letters. I remember learning cursive in school when I was maybe 7 or 8 years old and I would measure the distance between letters using the lines on my thumbs. I also discovered that I am ambidextrous at this point. I studied the alphabet and spent time with each letter. I wrote each one in all different styles that I could imagine. "A" was my favorite. It still is. A capital "A" is the only letter that embodies a solid triangle, the strongest shape. I'm definitely not like the other kids.
