Ashley Muller, Communications Officer

Oxford, United Kingdom

 

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Ashley moved with her family to Taiwan when she was 9 years old for 8.5 years. During this time, Ashley had the chance to travel the world, which to this day has not stopped; at the age of the 25, she has travelled to over 25 countries. Ashley is a graduate from the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada, obtaining two Bachelor degrees, one in Political Science, one in International Development. 

Ashley was first introduced to Initiatives of Change during an internship through her university in January 2014. She has since remained involved on a volunteer basis, until July 2015 joined the Interns Leadership Programme in Caux, Switzerland. During Ashley’s time there, she was exposed to the Caux conferences; in her role in the Conference Operations department she saw conferences work from behind the scenes. In September 2015, Ashley moved to Oxford, UK to work full-time with Initiatives of Change on different projects in the UK and abroad.

Ashley’s desire for joining the Just Governance team comes from her first hand exposure to the inequalities of the world: extreme poverty, gender inequality, oppression of women, refugees fleeing war and political instability, etc.; her qualifications and university education are tangible elements of her passion towards addressing global issues, with a hope to one day do this at an international governmental level. She is passionate about social change and she is inspired to bring people into an awareness of their role and responsibility as an individual fostering global change and good governance.

As a Canadian abroad, Ashley misses maple syrup, watching hockey, and skiing in the snow covered Rocky Mountains. However, her deep love for travelling and adventure keeps her grounded as she floats around the world learning about new cultures and meeting new people.
