Aisha, a 34-year-old teacher at The Evergreen State College, grew up in Olympia and spent much of her youth studying and working all over the country before returning home to Olympia. She first studied Spanish at Grinnell College in Iowa, where she earned a Bachelor's Degree, then she studied at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina and taught third and fourth grade in Atlanta, returning to Penland for further studies during the summers. She felt like she needed time to study and work on her art with her peers, so she went back to school and earned a BFA in Ceramics from Washington State University, where she graduated summa cum laude, and then off to the University of Nebraska to get her MFA in Fine Arts.
