I'm Ashley -- a Florida native, Washingtonian transplant, and global citizen.
Though I tend to spend more time out of the country than in it, I currently live, work, and study in Washington, D.C., where I'm pursuing my M.S. in Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
I'm passionate about international security, women's rights and empowerment, and global politics--and often, the intersection of all three.
I hope to use this platform to provide a small window to the world as I've seen it, to share my experiences in it, and to inspire others to delve deeper into it. I believe the world can best be changed by building cultural understanding through genuine relationships, and I believe that change starts with us.
