She also spent a summer in Italy and a summer in France where she studied both languages and cultures. During her time in both countries she was exposed to various issues surrounding the refugee crisis. This exposure strengthened her commitment to human rights and influenced her decision to pursue a law degree. Currently, she is a rising third year law student at the University of Texas School of Law. In her spare time, Ashley volunteers with a program that helps middle school students build leadership skills and confidence. After law school, Ashley plans to work on various legal projects pertaining to educational equity.
