About Ashley Lamoreaux

My name is Ashley Lamoreaux and I am a senior International Studies student at Arcadia University. My ultimate goal is to travel the world with as little amenities as possible, seeking truth in order to bridge the gap of understanding between peoples and cultures. I aspire to join the Peace Corps, work in international development, and become a freelance travel journalist and photographer! I'm an aspiring auto-mechanic, singer/song writer, and an advocate for peace and sustainability. I've just returned from South Africa after living there for an entire year. If you'd like to see some videos from my scooter trip across the country, check out my new Youtube channel!
