Meet Ashley

A Model Resident with a ‘Passion for Fashion’
Ashley S. of Harrison Square is a model resident, and now she’s also a model – literally. Ashley just signed with a talent agency and has already been on a modeling tour in Florida. In December, she will model clothing on a runway in New York’s Harlem district, and will be on call for other modeling and promotional gigs nationally. She currently works as an office assistant at the Gainesville Housing Authority as part of the Georgia Mountains Regional Commission’s Workforce Development program.
Her new career came about in an unusual way: a talent scout discovered her on Facebook. At first, she wasn’t so sure it was legitimate, but after checking, she learned that it was.
Ashley came to Harrison Square apartments in July (2013) after living with her mother, As a young mother with a toddler, she thought public housing might be a good place to get a start. “As a single parent, I wanted to be on my own,” she said. “I wanted to provide for my child and the housing authority gives me an opportunity to save some money while I’m on my own.”  Plus, she likes the neighborhood. “Harrison Square is very quiet and I love it.”
Ashley lived in Gwinnet and Dekalb counties before coming to Gainesville. She studied fashion marketing at Bauder College, in Atlanta, and also at Lanier Institute of Technology in Oakwood. She hopes to expand her modeling assignments into a career that eventually includes fashion marketing – and maybe even creating her own line of clothes.
“I’ve always had a passion for fashion,” she said.
