My name is Ashley Atkins, this is my second semester at MCCC and on the Agora. I am pursuing a degree as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
When I am not in class, you can usually find me in the Agora newsroom working on my latest assignment. When I have some free time to myself, I enjoy writing poetry, drawing or painting.
I found the Agora through a newsletter sent out to students the first week of school. I love how open they are here. I came with no previous experience and have learned so much in a little bit of time.
There are so many aspects to journalism that I never understood before. I have grown so much in one semester and am enjoying my new role here as assistant editor.
