About me...

My name is Ashley Marie Leighton. I came into the world on January 31, 1995. I was born and raised in Wilkes-Barre, PA. My family and friends are what is most important to me. Shopping and Notre Dame Football are my two biggest loves. I like to read and I refuse to let that define me as a nerd.

My catholic faith has always been important to me. I have attended catholic schooling kindergaten through twelfth grade and I am furthering it by attending King's College. At King's, I am in the mass communications program. Mass communication is how information is spread to large amounts of people.

Certain classes are required to be taken for the mass communication major. This semester I had to take six classes. Some were required for the major and others were not. I had to take a Math and First Year Experience class, which were required for me. Survey of Mass Communications and Computer Applications were two classes that I took, and they happened to be taught by the same teacher, Dr. Weiland. I also took Effective Writing and Effective Oral Communication class. They both are classes that will help me later when I am in the occupation I want to be in. I aspire to one day work for a magazine (Cosmopolitan or Glamour).
