Asha Daniels from "Under the Gunn" is one of the fashion designer contestants in the Lifetime reality competition series.

Don't be fooled by Asha Daniels' affable demeanor — this bright-eyed beauty is feisty as hell, and sharp as a tack. Her design aesthetic is modern and young, but there's also a toughness to her work that reflects her own strength as a woman.

Though she grew up in a poor neighborhood, Asha's parents made her education a top priority. Competitive from an early age, Asha earned a full scholarship at the most prestigious high school in Cincinnati, then beat out 2,000 people for a scholarship to fashion school at the University of Cincinnati. She recently interned at Marchesa (meeting Georgina Chapman blew her mind) and a dress she helped drape became a part of the bridal collection. Asha is extremely tight with her family and worries that if she is forced to move to another city to pursue her career, she'll have to find a way to bring them along.
