Ashley Yum

Blacksburg, Va.

Hi! My name is Ashley Yum and I am currently a senior attending my last semester at Virginia Tech. I am pursuing a major in Public Relations, a minor in International Studies, and a cognate in Marketing. During spring semester of my junior year, I spent four months traveling to 14 countries in Europe and embracing what the world has to offer. I developed a passion for travel, culture, and trying new things.

Tying my newly found love for travel into my major, I hope to be able to bridge public relations across cultures - considering cultural nuances, language barriers, and interpersonal communication. I also hope to encourage others to spend time abroad!
