My name is Ashley. I'm a first year student here at the University of Minnesota, majoring in Computer Science so far. I attended the University of Minnesota Crookston last year as a PSEO student. I grew up in a rather large family in a very small town. Aside from family and academics the majority of my time has been devoted to extra-curricular activities and athletics. Over the last few years I've participated in National Honor Society, YBA, knowledge bowl, choir, ensembles, work base, basketball, track and softball. I'm taking this class because my focus in Computer Science is shifting towards graphic design, web development and advertising, and it won't hurt that it should be a lot of fun!
