Ashley is currently studying at University of Newcastle in Newcastle, Australia!
Here is a picture of Ashley in front of the Cradle Mountain located in Tasmania.

“My favorite experience thus far has to be sailing through the Witsunday Islands and diving on the Great Barrier Reef. Ever since I got my diver’s licence, it has been a dream of mine to dive here so the whole experience was very surreal.”

Advise for other students thinking about traveling abroad: “I would tell a student that is planning on coming here to make sure to go out of their comfort zone and make friends. Since it is the opposite hemisphere, first semester at home is second semester here so many people already have their friend groups. So, if you just act yourself and find a group of friends to fit in with you will be just fine!”

Ashley we are so glad that you are having such a wonderful time!
