She had a passion for basketball and wanted to grow up to be a WNBA star.
Her parents said something changed in Ashawnty toward the end of last month, when she was involved in a fight on school property, after classes were over. Two weeks after the fight, Ashawnty took her own life.
The video was uploaded to a social media app called Musical.ly, which is used for creating and sharing short videos.
In the video, he said, Ashawnty and another girl are seen fighting while a group of kids watch.
Latoshia Harris, the girl's mother, said the incident happened because her daughter confronted the other girl, who she claims had been bullying Ashawnty.
"I saw my daughter was scared", she added.
While the video is hard to watch, her parents believe it's important to see.
"She was devastated when she found out that it had made it to Musical.ly", said Anthony Davis, Ashwanty's father.

Chatting with Entertainment Weekly on Thursday, EP Jed Whedon noted that who the actress is playing is "a wait and see" for now. Jeff adds, "But she came in and nailed it". "She's ideal for the role", Whedon adds. "So we're excited about it".
A 10-year-old Colorado girl committed suicide after a video of a fight with an alleged bully was posted online, her parents said. She spent two weeks on life support at Children's Hospital Colorado, where she died Wednesday morning.
"It's just devastating", her father said.
They believe she is the victim of "Bullycide".
Now, her family is using her tragic story to raise awareness to the damaging consequences of bullying. "We have to stop it and we have to stop it within our kids".
"I want other parents to know that it's happening", Harris said.
"This is a heartbreaking loss for the school community". Mental health supports will be made available for any students who need help processing the loss.
"We do not tolerate bullying of any kind in our schools and we have a comprehensive bullying prevention program in place at all of our schools", the district said in a statement to Fox 31 Denver. The safety and wellbeing of students is our highest priority and we strive every today to ensure schools are safe, welcoming and supportive places that support learning.
When the school district was made aware of the video in October, they say they spoke to the children involved, called their parents and handed the video over to police.
