Ashton Craycraft
Ashton is a junior majoring in Data Science with a concentration in Political Science.

Her passion for studying intricate social phenomena and fascination with the way that federal institutions vary in structure and efficiency led her to intern for the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation during the fall of her junior year. There, she will manage and improve the data collection and analysis operations of the Office’s Export Control and Border Security Program. On-campus, she works with the PLTC as a Writing Tutor and is co-president of the Wellesley College Book Club. She has a working proficiency in French, with the intention to work abroad in a francophone nation after college. Ashton’s goal upon graduation is to work with a federal agency on international policy, preferably concerning governance in developing nations.
