LUNCH 11:45 a.m., LECTURE 12:15 p.m.

Ashley Orton was raised in California and graduated from CMC in 1991 with a double major in philosophy/public affairs and French. In 1992 she taught English in China for one year and then traveled overland across China, Tibet, Nepal, and India. She lived in Budapest, Hungary from 1994-1999, teaching English, learning Hungarian, and working for a USAID-funded Hungarian development program. From 1999-2000 she worked on a "yard crew" in a rural Mississippi town and then moved to Washington, D.C. to take a job with the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs. Orton currently works for Amnesty International USA designing and delivering training for human rights activists across the country.

Take advantage of this opportunity to meet a CMC graduate who, for the past 14 years, has "followed her bliss."
