Ava Ashby, Photographer

Hey everyone! My name is Ava and this is my second year on Echo. I love photography and have a passion for horror movies and basically anything surrounding fall. If you need me you could probably find me at a basketball game or driving around with my friends. I’m super excited to figure out this year with everyone!!
