Responsible for all aspects of Project Exchange's internal brand  & operations.

A cohort of young people aged 13-24 from across the United States — we're passionate about diversity  and changing the world.

Ashley is passionate about increasing access to global literacy, and amplifying the voices of young changemakers around the world. Whether it be women’s empowerment, civic engagement, or storytelling, Ashley believes true multicultural education inspires bold thinking and creativity which allows young people redefine any field of work, and create their own places at the table. Serving as a U.S. Department of State Youth Ambassador to Uruguay helped Ashley realize the importance of multicultural, diverse, and inclusive education - and the varying privilege and access students have to make study abroad reality. Ashley is excited about her role in empowering the next generation of barrier-breaking innovators and Nobel Peace Prize winners through cross-cultural understanding and collaboration!
