Asante Benjamin
Mrs. Creation

Asante graduated from Johnson & Wales University with her BA in Business Management and went on to earn her Masters in Entertainment Business from Full Sail University. After graduation, she became a substitute teacher for two years. The experience of being a substitute teacher in the school system positively reinforced her commitment to becoming an educator.

But the restrictions of the traditional system limited her opportunity to be her authentic, creative self in the classroom. Initially, Asante and her fiance, fellow Yellow Wood Facilitator; Desmond Smith, joined Yellow Wood as volunteers in 2013, facilitating the most popular classes—Cooking and PE! They currently facilitate PE and Acting Classes. Asante is a trained dancer and thespian, a lover of yoga and all things rooted in kindness.
