## Your Instructor

Hi, I'm Nikala Asante!

I'm an author, educator, and international human rights advocate from Houston, Texas.

I attended University of Houston, earning my undergraduate degree in Creative Writing and African American Studies and my Master's in Education: Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Instructional Technology with a graduate certificate in Africana Studies.

More than anything in life, I want to see each of our youth receive a holistic and culturally centered education. They are the leaders of the future and will steer our planet towards balance and sustainability if they are educated to do so.

My passion for global balance has led me to traverse 12 countries such as Ghana, Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Belize over the past 8 years to engage in ample research and service. And in my commitment to share all that I learn, I've written 8 books in the genres of fiction, poetry, social justice, and education which you can find between amazon.com and kamaliacademystore.com.

I currently spend most of my time writing, teaching online, spending time with my children, and creating educational programs. Any time I have left, you'll catch me walking in nature, dancing and freestyling rapping, laughing with friends, or doing something adventurous like ziplining over the rainforest.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your educational journey!

Love and Light,

Nikala Asante
