Anastasia Kingsley
Who are you?

I'm Anastasia Kingsley, born, raised and educated in the USA (California to be exact). My dad was a first generation American, of Croatian heritage, though he never set foot in his homeland. His parents were immigrants and his way of life, all his life, was definitely European. My mom is of French heritage, but much more Americanized. I didn't speak Croatian or any other language besides English when I came to live here.   more ...

I am pretty much as American as you can get without being a Native American – meaning my ancestors came over to the “New World” well over 100 years ago.

When people ask me where I am from, I am not really sure what to say. My family moved around a lot in New York State (i.e. not the city) and then to Ohio. When I was 16, I finished high school a year early and moved to Philadelphia on my own. I eventually went to college there as well and have a Bachelors of Arts degree in Sculpture.   more ...
