Student Spotlight on Ashley Ingenito

What is something that most people don’t know about you?

One of my biggest fears is being forgotten. Growing up in a house with six brothers and one sister it’s hard to stand out to the public sometimes. For a while people just knew me as Chris’s little sister or one of the Ingenitos. I want to stand out and make a difference in someone’s life or do something that would separate me from my brothers shadows. I want to be remembered for me.

What is your goal for this year?

My goal for this year is to be better. Really trying to not fail classes and reaching for new heights.

What is the greatest experience you have ever had?

Getting my second piercing. It might seem boring to most but it is special to me. My Dominican aunt convinced the family to let their children get a second hole. We did it all as a family and it was pretty cool.

What is unique about your personality?

I put people over myself most of the time. If someone is sad or needs help, I am there. Even if it takes time out of my busy schedule, I usually find a way to be there.

What qualities do you value in people you spend your time with?

Qualities I value are being faithful and reliable . Life is going to suck sometimes, but my friends  are always there for me and I thank you guys for that.

What is your life motto?

Be different be weird.

What values are important are you?

Determination, can’t get anywhere without it.

What movie can you watch over and over without ever getting tired of?

Avengers Infinity War. I think my dad watched it every weekend for a month or two because there was nothing else interesting on (in his eyes), so I ended up watching it with him. I am basically trained to watch it forever now and not complain.

What’s something people don’t worry about but really should?

What they say or talk about. Words hurt. It doesn’t matter if it’s the truth or a lie but those words can hurt someone. People are insanely rude and sometimes just need to stop before it goes too far.

What’s your favorite joke?

Is mayonnaise an instrument?
