Ashelyn Shaffer

KU '26

I'm a freshman at KU, and I graduated from Blue Springs High School in 2023. In high school, I had an interest in writing and competed in HOSA for Extemporaneous Writing. I achieved first place at State, and at Internationals I made the Top 10. Just last fall, I took anthropology and participated in the Public Anthropology Project, for which I received an award.

For the past 2 years, I have worked at the childcare program at an elementary school in my hometown for kids before and after school. We act as their teachers, and I really enjoy working with kids. I can't wait to go back home and work again!

In my free time, I love watching movies and tv. I'm a total fanatic about those things, and I love having movie marathons with plenty of snacks. I have also recently gotten very into painting my nails. It's become a serious obsession, and I now own more nail polish than I care to admit. I also love animals; I have a cat named Oreo and a dog named Chip.
