About Me

Hi I’m Aisling, or Ash for short…because I’m short. Also because most people outside of Ireland can’t pronounce my name correctly. I’m Irish, but I currently live in Scotland. I moved here to do my Masters degree, but decided to stay here to embark upon the big bad graduate world. This all ends soon though, as I’m moving to Australia to live on a beach.
