Ashley is a comparative politics major at Princeton University, with a concentration in entrepreneurship under conditions of disadvantage, and minors in environmental and American studies.

After graduation, Ashley intends to enter the field of social entrepreneurship in emerging markets, and is currently developing Pasand, an enterprise based in India.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
