Ashley is currently a student at NVOT High School in New Jersey. She was first interested in computing and engineering when she took a Robotics class and joined a Robotics team in eighth grade. After she participated in the FIRST Robotics competition, she knew she could not stop there. In her first year of high school, she took classes called Introduction to Programming and Programming for Microcontrollers. She also joined the Science Team, STEM Team, and Math Team at her high school. As a sophomore, she created a girl's STEM club called the SWENext Club in her school to share her love for coding and engineering and encourage other girls to become interested in STEM related careers. In addition, she learned the Raspberry Pi using Python during a summer class. Currently, she is learning how to program Java in her AP Computer Science A class. In the future, she hopes to major in Cyber Operations at the Naval Academy. During her free time, she enjoys swimming, surfing, fishing, sailing, snorkeling, and any water related activities. She hopes to learn to scuba dive this summer.
