Ashleigh is currently a sophomore at The College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan majoring in digital photography. The 2020 virtual conference was her second conference. As the chair of the social media committee, Ashleigh wholeheartedly believes in the mission of the NSA and wants to make sure every teen who stutters feels safe and supported within the NSA. Not remembering a time when she didn’t stutter, Ashleigh wants to change society’s view of stuttering so that people who stutter don’t feel they have to live in fear about being open with their speech. Ashleigh always wants to empower people who stutter and continues to be inspired by their perseverance.
