Ashley Marie Bueno was born on september 15th, 1994 and raised in New York City, NY. Ashley was raised by her mother Jessica Navarro and her father Jorge Luis Bueno in uptown Manhattan known as washington Heights. Her mother is Peruvian and her Father is Dominican; they met in George Washington High School and became an item. A year later, Ashley's mother became pregnant. She was born in New York Presbyterian Hospital at 11 a.m.

She went to school in New York until 2010 when her and her mother moved to North Carolina with her two younger sisters and stepfather. Ashley had just finished her sophmore year at High School of Fashion Industries. It was a big change for her to adjust to the quietness North Carolina offered but nonetheless she decided to make the best out of it. She finished her High School career at Knightdale High School located in Knightdale, NC and graduated in 2012. At the end of her junior year, Ashley decided she wanted to be a nurse so she began applying to schools with the best nursing programs and was accepted to East Carolina University in Greenville, NC.

At East Carolina University, Ashley excelled in her studies but felt like she was very distant from her mother and sisters. After two years at East Carolina University, she decided she no longer wanted to be there so she decided to transfer to North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. Because of the transfer, Ashley was forced to change her major because the transfer caused her to fall behind. She changed her major to Public Health Education and is now back on track to graduating in 2016. She plans on graduating from North Carolina Central University and then persue a nursing degree at East Carolina University or University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
