Ash is an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, studying legal studies. She was raised in a working-class community in Los Angeles, where her passion as an organizer and researcher flourished.

Her experience as a community organizer influenced her research, as she now focuses on labor and worker rights.

At UC Berkeley, she joined the Latinxs and the Environment Initiative to develop a policy proposal on research she conducted on California regulations intended to mitigate rising heat indexes’ effects on farmworkers. As a Labor Summer Intern with the UC Berkeley Labor Center, she began working with the Distributed AI Research Institute where she researches the use of surveillance and artificial intelligence systems by employers committing wage theft.
