Meet Ashley Welch, official CAPA blogger in Dublin for summer 2015:
- - -
Hello! My name is Ashley. I’m currently a junior economics major at Clemson University with a minor in financial management. In my free time you can usually find me out with friends, playing with the nearest dog, or cheering on the Clemson Tigers at Memorial Stadium. I am involved in Greek life at Clemson and plan on eventually pursuing my MBA after graduation.
Traveling is one of my passions and this summer I have fortunately ended up interning in Dublin, Ireland. Since I have roots in Ireland I am thrilled to immerse myself in Irish culture and really make Dublin my home for the next few months. While I won’t be taking classes at Griffith College like most CAPA bloggers, prepare to read about my experiences interning abroad in a European country. Other blog topics will likely include posts about delicious food I’ve stumbled upon, exploration of the city and all of Ireland, spontaneous weekend trips, and the locals I meet.
I have traveled to Europe before, but I feel and hope that living and interning there will be a different, life-changing experience. Tune into my weekly posts and find out!
