The Autobiography of Ashton Lukes

"Only the strong survive," is a quote from Henry Spencer that describes me in a nut shell. I'm a very out going, energetic, sweet, confident, easy to get along with person. However every princess has a dark side. I'm known for my strong humor and competitive ways. Growing up with a military father, a strong-minded stepmother, and having a strict grandfather is what made me who I am today.

April 17, 1989, was not only the day I was born but also the day my father became a real man and learned to care for someone other than himself.

My step-mom isn't known for her loving affectation but I will always have a great respect for my step-mom for all the things she has done for my sister, brother, and me. Nichole has taught me that even when you're backed into a corner and there is no one on your side you always have yourself.
