Hey Resilient Family, I’m Ashley!
I am a resiliency activator, motivational speaker, mental health aficionado, content creator, sexual health education lover, and gratitude filled young woman. I’m originally from NYC, a Queen from Queens to be exact.
I was raised by Nana so I have an affinity for elderly people. She instilled in me the importance of education and being a good person. I owe everything to her. When people compliment me, I acknowledge that it is my Nana living through me. Isn't she so fly in her mink coat?
I earned a B.A. from Hofstra University in Broadcast Journalism so I love on camera appearances and video editing. As a Bill Gates Millennium Scholar, I earned my Master of Public Health in May 2016.
I genuinely love life. It has taken me a long time to love who I am- and honestly it's an ongoing process, not a destination. I use my platform to give you a transparent peek into my journey and how I remain resilient in hopes of it inspiring you to do the same.
Can’t Live Without: My Nana, God, Asthma Pump
Can’t Go a Day Without:Camera, Planner, Fruit, Athletic Clothing, Music
Can’t Wait to Visit: Thailand, South Africa, Greece, Curaçao
Let's Do This Together…
I find joy in impacting the lives of others through service, education, and inspiration. I was born into difficult family circumstances that I couldn’t change so instead I made the best of every situation by finding something to be grateful for.
I believe, there is an immeasurable amount of talent wasted daily because people don’t have faith in themselves to rise above their circumstances. Therefore, I am dedicated to creating content and experiences that help people realize how resilient they are.
Life is a struggle for me as well, so this journey is for the both of us, so we Don’t Die Afraid.
If you’re new, here are the top three posts that were the most empowering for me to write:
- My Sexual Harassment Experience
- The Launch of Black Mental Health Makeover
- Transparent Story About My Blog Absence
If my mission speaks to you, don’t be afraid to send me a note, I love connecting and collaborating with like minded individuals!
