A WINDOW INTO THE DAILY LIFE AND THOUGHTS OF SLIS STUDENTS

Ashley Jackson

Hi guys, I'm Ashley, and I am brand new to grad school and Massachusetts! I am in the MA for Children's Literature, and I could not be more excited to have the opportunity to study at Simmons. I expect to learn a lot here and network to meet people. I am truly stoked to have the chance to focus on Children's Literature and see where that takes me (publishing hopefully!).

I was born and raised in Texas and have lived there my whole life. So, this is quite the experience for me. I have spent quite a bit of time in England, so I'm not 100% in culture shock, but Boston is different than Austin; in a good way (hello snow)! I cannot wait to explore the city more and see what New England is all about. I am married to the coolest guy, and we have two dogs. Besides sweeping up fur in my spare time, I enjoy taking the dogs to the park or for a hike, swimming, and baking vegan treats. And of course, reading. My favorite genre currently is fantasy.
