Ashley was a guest speaker fro the STEAM (science technology engineering arts and math) summer program. It took place at Turner Tech High School which is minutes away from Ashley's neighborhood growing up. She discussed being from the inner city and the advantages and disadvantages that had on her career. She also exposed them to the field of dietetics and the importance of nutrition into our day to day lives. Students were able to ask questions about challenges of being black in science professions, financial concerns, and more about nutrition as a science.
