Ashanti - Faces of Somerset County

Ashanti - 22
Bakery Supervisor

"My favorite thing about Somerset county is how small it is. I'll admit it took me a while to realize it, but I'm very grateful to have grown up in a small town.

My happiest memory to date is probably the day my littlest sisters, Adrianna and Arianna, were born. I was 14 when they were born. I have two other siblings (my brother Tank who is two years younger than me and my sister Caitlyn who is four years younger), so I was too young to understand and appreciate like I did at 14 with the twins. I love them all equally obviously, but I got to be by my mom's side through the whole thing and it brought us so much closer. And meeting them for the first time was such an incredible feeling, it's a day I'll never forget.

And I think the most important thing in life is love. Cliche, maybe, but it's the truth. Always go where the love is."
