Meet our newest rockstar: Ashita Gona

Get to know the newest addition to the BC/DC Ideas team, our intern Ashita. We love her (in a completely professional way), and so will you!

Profpic1editWhy do you love communications?

I enjoy the challenge of finding ways to engage people with an idea, brand or product. It is fun to figure out what will grab an audience’s attention and how to make them care. Furthermore, I am a chatterbox who enjoys storytelling and expressing herself. Communications is what I was meant to do, and every road I have taken has led back to it.

What is your nonprofit passion point? 

I am very interested in addressing problems with food deserts, and I have always been convinced that community/sustainable gardens are the solution. My interest in projects like these are the result of my passion for environmental sustainability and tree-hugging.

Why are you excited to join the BC/DC Ideas team?

Public relations is what I want to do with my life, and working with nonprofits is where my heart lies. BC/DC Ideas combines both of these interests, and I am pumped to learn how to incorporate these elements into a potential career!

Where would people most likely find you on a Saturday afternoon?

In a park, kayaking or throwing a frisbee with a couple of friends!

Which rockstar/musician/band would you most like to be and why?

For the last couple of years, I have wanted to be Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic because the lyrics and music he produces are incredible. His talent shines through everything he does, and it has allowed him to work with the most powerful entertainers in the music industry. He also seems like a really cool guy, and who doesn’t want to be cool?

What is your favorite color?

Green. Not just any green though; I love lime green. A friend once told me I had a “lime green problem.” I probably own too many shirts in this great color and even made sure my glasses had lime green accents when I bought them.

What is the one office supply you can not live without?

I usually have a pen on me. This is because I never know when a great idea might strike, and I worry that if I write it down with a pencil, it will smear. Smeared ideas are lost ideas!
