Ashley is a senior acting major at Central Connecticut State University where in 2013, she produced and performed the one-woman show My Name is Rachel Corrie. Describing herself as “someone who believes in the power of creative resistance,” Ashley took on this theater project to grow as an artist as well as an ally of Palestine. She used her theater effort to support The Freedom Theatre in Jenin refugee camp, where young people’s frustrations with long-term occupation are channeled into creative expression.
