Ash Beckham to speak at UNCW

Ash Beckham: Wednesday, April 19th at 6pm in McNeil 1005

About ASH

her speeches are dynamic,
 intrepid, highly relatable and intrinsically comical.

Ash didn't set out to become a viral sensation with her TEDx talk “Coming Out of Your Closet” or her Boulder Ignite speech, “I am SO GAY”. She was just a person with a lot on her mind and a story to share. Nonetheless, her willingness to strike a conversation about tough topics inspired more than 8 million YouTube views across the country. Today, she considers herself an accidental advocate, motivating others to embrace the kind of social behaviors that trigger societal shifts.



Her message is simple, "we aren't that different".
Her approach is frank, "mean what you say".
Her goal is humble; help others recognize the power of empathy, respect and conversation
