Ashley battle from "battle for beauty"
Born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, I have come a long way in just the short 22 years of my life, and not just in my blog! I am a recent graduate of Virginia Tech with two degree's, one in Public Relations and the other in Marketing-Management. I also played D1 volleyball at Virginia Tech, hold a few records in their books and was an All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year for my school. I am currently living in Las Vegas with my wonderful boyfriend Kareem and have a job as a content creator and social media guru for an amazing company out here!
Oh yeah, I also have this blog ;)
You might wonder how I got into doing beauty as I have no background in it, but it is something I have been passionate about since I was in high school. I originally went to college for a degree in bio-chemistry so I could make cosmetics, however, that clearly didn't work out as I decided I would be much happier selling makeup, than actually making it in a boring old lab by myself!
I had wanted to start a Youtube channel all throughout college. Everything I learned about makeup was from Youtube and I figured if they could do it, why couldn't I! Unfortunately with a full-time schedule of volleyball, traveling for volleyball and classes, on top of a different part-time job every year, organizations AND still trying to have a social life, I clearly had no time for a channel if I was only constantly getting 4 hours of sleep a night anyway! However, after working hard for so long, I found myself in a position where I could finally start my channel and I haven't looked back ever since. The most rewarding thing to me is when someone says they watched my video, or read my blog post and said that they learned something. Nothing makes me happier than being able to see how confident someone else can be, by just wearing makeup and feeling great about themselves, and that's what I strive to do everyday. I hope you guys can get something out of my videos and blogs and if you do, please share them with me! I would love to see how confident a great makeup and skin care routine can make you feel as confident on the outside, as you are on the inside :)
Love you guys, and thank you for being here!
