While competing in her first Eagle Works competition in 2015, Ashlin learned about a passionate and driven group of innovation and entrepreneurship leaders called the University Innovation Fellows from her teammate and UIFellow, Abby Collins. Rooted in her interest in I&E, Ashlin jumped at the opportunity to increase interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation on campus! By showing other students the importance of innovating within their own major/career, she hopes to instill the potential for creating a brighter future. As a UIFellow, she actively works on short workshops and sessions called "pop-ups" in the iMakerspace to teach others about cool and creative topics throughout the year. Ashlin also serves as an Entrepreneurship intern with the I&E program.
