Ashley-Ann Davis is a Kummer Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fellow at Missouri S&T pursuing her Ph.D. in engineering management. She completed her bachelor’s degree and hopes to pursue a career in entrepreneurship upon the completion of graduate school.

Davis was born and raised in Jamaica and moved to the US at the age of 16 to pursue better college opportunities. As an immigrant, she faced many adjustments and centered her TEDx talk on how she transitioned to a new country and environment while redefining herself in this new space.
