BIO Ashley Golebiewski grew up in a bilingual family. Her first language was Polish, so as a child it was a challenge for her to speak English. While in the ESOL program she pushed herself to learn English by seeking extra help and continually working on improving her language skills. With hard work and determination, she achieved honors in high school and became the first person in her family to attend college. Ashley is currently attending Central Connecticut State University and pursuing a major in Finance with a minor in Communications. Ashley is so proud of her Polish heritage because it has made her more understanding of different cultures and ethnicities. As a child of Polish immigrants she was physically and emotionally bullied. From this experience, Ashley became an advocate for an international anti-bullying organization. Through this work, she wants to share with people of all ages that it's important to believe in yourself and love who you are including all of your imperfections because they are what make you unique.
