Meet the Editor

Hi everyone!

I’m Ashley E. Osborne, and I am the Editor-in-Chief of The Ohio University Women’s Center blog for the 2013-14 academic year! I am a junior Strategic Communication major, earning a minor in Spanish. Last fall, I served as a volunteer at the Women’s Center and I quickly fell in love with the Center’s welcoming environment. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to write for such an influential blog and I plan to keep you, the reader, engaged, educated and frequenting our site. If you’re a frequent reader and would like to contribute an entry or piece to our blog, feel free to reach out to me via email at ao749810@ohio.edu.

As a public relations professional, I plan to pursue the industries of entertainment, culture, lifestyle, and entrepreneurship. As a woman, I know I will be faced with obstacles that may prevent me from achieving my personal goals. Also, being a professional woman in the entertainment industry, I can predict it will be easy to get caught up in the many superficial influences. Growing with confidence, faith, and a strong value on equality, I know how important it is to stay true to yourself as life progresses. Being a feminist is an important part of who I am today. I have not always viewed and held people, including myself, at an equal level of respect. I have been through many life lessons that have fostered a change in the way I view the importance of respect. I believe we should accept people for who they are, no matter if they are familiar or foreign to our views of life. I am an advocate for peace, equality and respect. I hope to share my views with you all and maybe provide a different perspective on popular and personal issues and events.

Outside of class, I spend my time being actively involved with student organizations such as Ohio University Student Senate, Scripps PRSSA, ImPRessions,  Black Student Cultural Programming Board, and Black Student Union. Outside of campus, I enjoy writing poetry, cooking my favorite cuisines, planning events, networking, traveling, and listening to music. I am interested in all aspects of culture, God, fostering meaningful relationships, and helping people make their visions come to life. I love people and the stories and experiences we all have to share. I believe the beauty in life is the diversity of everything around us. I am a very nice person- always willing to lend a hand, an ear or a share laughs. Stop by the Women’s Center at Baker 403 and say hello! 🙂

As editor, I plan to post to our blog at least twice a week. I want to get involvement from our readers with guest pieces (written posts, photographs, videos, related current events, etc.). It is my mission to mold our blog into a platform for a supportive community. If you have any questions, concerns, or hopefully want to publish content, please send an outreach email to ao749810@ohio.edu.

Take care,

AO
