Miss Teen Virginia USA – Ashley
Ashley Wang is a high school junior aiming to study biochemistry and become a cosmetic chemist. She hopes she can combine her love for chemistry and beauty to create products that will help people feel confident in their own skin.
Ashley is also on two nationally ranked dance teams, and has been dancing since she was five.
Ashley helps manage her school’s tutoring organization, where she has received training to tutor AVID, ESOL, Honors, and AP-level courses. As a 4.6 GPA student, she’s realized that asking for help is for everyone, and she is working to break the stigma around tutoring.
Most of all, Ashley hopes that she can be a genuine role model. Her favorite phrase will always be, progression over perfection!
