Jim Morrison, the iconic singer, songwriter and poet once said, "The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are." He didn't explain how to make that happen, however, which is the tricky part. It's not easy to be true to oneself - especially when society has its preformed templates and expectations.
Fortunately for Asia Golden, she was raised by parents who not only had global perspectives, but also represented worldwide DNA.

Jim William Wagner was born on May 4, 1940 in Wauseon, Ohio. His mother was a music teacher and his father was a high school principal.
In 1951 the Wagner family moved to Monmouth, Oregon, and it was in Oregon where Wagner first discovered his lifelong love of art.
Jim described a third grade experience in an interview with the late Stephen Parks for ARTlines: “I’ll always remember this – I had a teacher who would come in on Fridays and teach art. One day, I was drawing a ballerina, and I got down to the bottom of the paper, and I had to bend her legs across. I asked the teacher about that, if it was all right to do that, and she said, “You can do anything you want to do with that piece of paper.”
