Audio: Ashley Pena: Hi, everyone, my name is Ashley Pena and I'm coming to you from Aan Antonio Texas. I'm currently pursuing a bachelor of science in general psychology with a concentration in addictions. In the future, I hope to attain my PhD and become a counselor to at-risk adolescents, teens, and young adults who have also struggled with addiction or who have family members who struggle with addiction.

 I'm a full-time mom to five kids and my dog named Spunky. Most of my time is spent with them watching movies or cooking or baking for them.

My advice to Walden students is to have faith in yourself keep persistent because you never know what you can do until you try!
