QUESTION & ANSWER with Ashley
 
*Tell our readers something about yourself they would not have expected? 
 
I’m deathly allergic to bee’s, so it very scary for me every time I walk out of the door. I’ve almost died on several occasions because of being stung. Notably one of those occasions was after hurricane Katrina when I was stationed at Keesler AFB and our hospital was destroyed. 
 
 
*What motivates you?
Drive, passion, and desire for a better life/world. 
 
 
*Do you find it hard to balance your career with your personal life?
Those who matter most in my personal life fully support my career and when I may find it hard to balance both, they are always there. 
 
 
*Name the one thing you can’t live without.
The internet 🙂 I love my friends and the internet allows to me keep in touch with them, especially those who live internationally at the tips of my fingers.
 
 
*What kind of girl were you growing up?
Being the oldest of five children I always have been taking care of others. I was and still am who loved animals, pictures, spending time with my friends, and learning about history, specifically ancient cultures. 
 
*What has changed since becoming a model and public figure?
My entire life, for better or worse. I’ve made genuine friendships with people who I never would have possibly met. Priceless friends, industry contacts, and fans. The more my network grows, I feel that I have more power to make a difference in this world.

*Name the one thing you would love to see happen in this world.
I have to name three! The end of wildlife poaching, bullying and the inequality placed on the LBGT community. It’s easy to hate, harder to love.
 
 
*What’s your favorite movie and why?
Still is and always will be Twister. Great survival story about achieving one’s dream and how far some may be willing to go for the greater good.
 
 
*If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
SOUTH AFRICA, KRUGER NATIONAL PARK AND PHOTOGRAPH EVERYTHING I SAW 🙂

Triple love of baseball, MMA, and futbol.
