Ashley graduated from college and got a 1st for her senior dissertation!
In her own words:
“I just graduated from the University of St Andrews with a Bachelor’s in Computer Science with honours and got a 1st class grade on my senior dissertation! For my dissertation, I created a personalized reflective phone application that encourages positive engagement in educational scenarios. During my time at university, I founded a society called Women in Computer Science at St Andrews (WICS for short!) because I experienced sexism in my classes and wanted to create an encouraging, positive space for women in my major 😊. Later this fall I’m starting a SE job at a bank in Scotland!”
