Ashley Garcia is a 20-something-year-old proud Latina born and raised in Dallas, Texas.

Ashley is a millennial who loves coding websites and always has her phone in her hand. Over the past year she has managed social and digital media for two clients, Plaid for Women and Emergency Ice Inc. Ashley interned at NBC 5 in Dallas and loved it. She enjoys using her knowledge in mass communication and digital media to grow a business through audience engagement on social media. She loves being innovated, meeting new people and broadening her horizons.

Ashley has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Texas State University. Her passion has always been to give a voice to the voiceless. She chose to go into this industry, because she truly believes that journalists are the key to fixing the broken news system. This is an incredible time to be a journalist, and she is honored to be able to seek the truth and report it.

All in all, Ashley would not be the woman she is today if it weren’t for her deep love, faith, trust and relationship with Jesus Christ. His love has never failed her and she wants to glorify Him in all that she does.

Later this year Ashley will be leaving to Moldova, a small country in Eastern Europe, for a year to serve as a missionary and as a journalist.
