Ashli was inducted into the Alpha Lambda Delta honor society, which recognizes the academic achievements of first-year students. A member of the Black Student Union, Ashli is vice president of her residence hall’s council and serves as a peer mentor. She was also part of the theater program’s production of the comedy “Stepping Out.”

Hope for the future

“I plan on getting my master’s in psychology and becoming a forensic psychologist. I want to work helping and serving people. I enjoy figuring out what people are thinking and determining their emotions and motives.”

Why she is grateful

“Being able to attend UNH provides me an opportunity to create a network and develop opportunities that will help me now and in the future. Pursuing a degree at UNH is something that I always knew I wanted to do, but money was always an issue. Every bit of help makes a difference, and I greatly appreciate the support I have received. It means a lot to me and my family.”
