A Wavelengths Interview With Ashley Olafsen

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmzRu36X6t4&w=560&h=315]

I am thrilled to share our latest interview with writer, public speaker, and creator of self confidence workshops, Ashley Olafsen. Ashley is the co-founder of MOVE, a company designed to promote self confidence and positive body image, through self confidence workshops. Ashley is an advocate for self-confidence, positive body image, and media representation. She is currently a freshman at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts.

Over this past summer, I had the pleasure of editing a version of Ashley’s upcoming book, tentatively titled Survival of the Prettiest. I enjoyed working with Ashley, and always admire her passionate spirit and relentless drive. Her book is not only well-written and well-researched, its quality is amplified with a powerful message and a desire to truly make a difference in teenagers’ lives. I am so looking forward to reading the finished product when it hits the shelves.

I didn’t have to turn it in or show it to anyone, and I knew I could revise it after I was finished, but just the thought of facing the page felt painful.
