About The Author
Ashley MartinezEntrepreneurship and Nonprofit Management Major, Class of 2016, Las Vegas, NV

From the desert to the land of rain and greenery, introducing........ Ashley Martinez!!!! *wooooaaahhhh, the crowd goes wild*

If it isn't obvious already, I'm a goofball. I love to have fun, try everything, and learn about anything. I'm a member of the IU Ballroom Dancing Club and Team, the Philanthropy and Community Service Director for KLLC Bryan 2, Soprano in SPC^2, and a MORE Ambassador.

I'm also fortunate enough to be a Fry Scholar and a Hudson and Holland Scholar. Thank you IU!!!

During my time here at IU, I hope to meet a ton of amazing people, try as many different things as possible, study abroad in as many different places as I can, and intern with a different nonprofit every summer. Afterwards, I hope to be accepted into the Masters International Program through SPEA in partnership with the Peace Corps (studying Nonprofit Management). The end goal...start my own nonprofit organization called C.H.A.N.C.E., which is based on the community service club I founded two years ago at my high school (Green Valley High School). Check it out: http://www.gvchance.weebly.com

P.S. I'm actually from Henderson, but since no one in the midwest knows where that is......it's a suburb of Las Vegas. I live literally 10 minutes from the strip.
