Here are my logistics:
My name is Asher Levi. That’s I’m a 28-year-old professional Black woman. So, I’ll start with a quick review of the most important, current, personal, and relational facts.

She’s an engineer. She travels all over the world hooking up and tearing down complex computer systems. “Responsible, empathetic, jet setter” are her middle names. They are, as a result of circumstance and sheer loveliness, my oldest and dearest friends. I also have a handful of non-biological friends who easily adorn the title “sister.” Most of us have grown up together and shared tears, laughter, advice, dissentions, and forgiveness. They’re all the bomb, at the top of their fields, and rising. To boot, they are all indisputable fly girls with metal hearts (i.e. solid gold).
