Ashley Chan ‘18 joined The Survey as a writer for the Arts and Entertainment section in her freshman year. To keep her on her toes, she enjoys exploring and writing about current trends that peak her interest. She aspires to be a professional writer in the future, and hopes to inspire others with her stories.
Besides being on The Survey staff as a writer, Ashley enjoys spending time in the library listening to K-Pop, or being peacefully absorbed in a good book. She is particularly interested in sci-fi, poetry, fantasy, thriller, teen-fiction, romance, and action. Some of her favorite books are The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks, The A.B.C Murders by Agatha Christie, and a few others written from Wattpad, her favorite mobile community where many unknown writers can express themselves online. Other than being a book nerd, Ashley enjoys watching shows like Adventure Time, The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, Red Band Society, Gotham, and Bravest Warriors.
Ashley is Cantonese and was born here in Brooklyn. She is also not the only one in her family to attend Tech as her uncle is an alumnus, and her sister is currently a junior.
Other interests Ashley indulges in are baking, arts and crafts, and playing and watching basketball with her favorite teams being OKC’S Thunders and L.A’s Lakers.
