Portrait of Ashley Salguero

Ashley Salguero

Marketing / Olney, MD


What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
I got into the Robert H. Smith School of Business and thought it was my best option.

What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
I chose to study marketing because I love film and music and wanted to do something with advertising in those fields when I'm older.

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
I am a part of WEI at the Smith School which is the Women's Empowerment Institute student group for Latina and Black women. I am also a part of their E-board as vice president of marketing. I'm also a part of College Park Media Scholars.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
I really want to network with people and try any opportunities that I may come across during my time at Maryland.

What are your future goals after graduation?
My future goals are to retire my mother and become an independent woman.

My favorite part of being a Maryland Promise Scholar:
My favorite parts of the Maryland Promise Program are the community we built and the friends I have made.
