Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Ashley, how would you best describe yourself?
Our readers would love to get to know you more Ashley. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
I used to be overweight and very unhappy with my body. I then decided it was time for a change I worked very hard, and the hard work turned to me loosing a whopping 80lbs. I did a shoot to celebrate my weight loss. From there I moved forward doing several more shoots.Modeling is such a stress reliever for me, and I love it! It's wonderful meeting so many new people and working with them. I am so happy I decided to go into this career. Today I am now proud of my body. I love hearing others stories about how they came to modelling.
