Ashley is a student at Union High School in Vancouver, WA, on a mission to reimagine education through entrepreneurship and edtech, especially from the lens of cross-cultural collaboration, civic power, and female empowerment. She’s constantly thinking about the intersections between school inequality, power distribution, diversity/inclusion, global education, and the future of work—and is constantly seeking candid conversations and new perspectives. Ashley has served as a U.S. Youth Ambassador to Uruguay, and is the Founder & CEO of Project Exchange, a youth-led, 501c3 nonprofit increasing cross-cultural learning experiences for high school & college students around the globe through digital solutions. When she’s not waving her hands animatedly while speaking about education and women in decision-making spaces, Ashley enjoys travelling off the beaten path for good food, sunsets, stories, and people.
