A little bit about Ashleigh
My name is Ashleigh Adams and I am committed to Florida Atlantic University for beach volleyball! I truly love the game of beach volleyball and I am so grateful for all of the people I have met through it and the opportunities I have had from it.
I have been competing at a high level since 8th grade finishing very well in many tournaments including 9th place at AAU nationals, 1st place at AVP nationals two times, and many first place open wins. I also play indoor volleyball for my high school for fun and have been named first team all state for 3 years and MVP for all 4 years.
I love the sport so much and can not wait for the many more memories and accomplishments I will attain through this sport!
GO OWLS ❤️ 💙
More about Ashleigh.
How would you describe yourself in 3 words:
Four fabulous questions…
How would you change the world?
I want to help the problem of hunger around the country and world! I am already involved in a lot of fundraisers that help to raise money and supplies for the homeless especially in Philadelphia. My goal is to make a non profit when I am older to help combat this worldwide problem and help to make the lives of the homeless better. It makes me so upset walking through Philadelphia and seeing all of the homeless people, especially veterans, that are struggling, and my goal is to help these men and woman.
What’s your superpower?
My superpower is being able to put myself in other peoples shoes and see a situation from their perspective. This allows me to be able to go out of my way to comfort those who I can see are struggling, and it even just allows me to be able to reason with someone who disagrees about something, or needs advice about something. I am very grateful to be able to have this trait because it makes it very easy to help those people around me.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?
The best piece of advice I have ever received is to live in the moment and not care what anyone else is thinking. In the beginning of high school, I struggled with worrying what others think so I was not being my true self. Ever since I started living by that advice I was given, I have been so much happier and healthier, and I have been able to be myself.
How would you like to be remembered?
I would like to be remembered as a compassionate person that went out of their way to help other people. I love helping others and I hope that I can continue to do this throughout my life and be remembered by this quality.
