My name is Aisha Shakti Hakim - call me Shakti - and I've been an Educator for just under 20 years. I'm from Brooklyn, NY and have lived in the Middle East since 2011.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from City College with a B.A. and I have a Masters of Science in Education. This means I'm a cool nerd.
