My Name

You may have noticed I have only one name.  In fact my full legal name is Shakti.  It has been my name since birth.  I joke that my parents must have thought I would be a rock star.  In all seriousness, my mother lived in India for a year as a child while my grandfather completed research for a Fulbright Scholarship.  That probably explains why she likes Indian names.  Shakti means empowerment.
