Ashley Kascak began her journey as a non-fiction storyteller as an arts and entertainment writer while studying journalism at SAIT Polytechnic in Calgary. After completing multimedia journalism training in Southern France, she mentored young writers as the Alberta Liaison for the youth publication, Youthink Magazine. Her passion for visual storytelling led her to Capilano University’s intensive documentary film program in North Vancouver, where she began turning her lens on injustices against women and children. She recently completed a short film, My Way Out, a story documenting great courage amidst unfathomable barriers and living circumstances for females working in obligatory sex work in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Ashley’s love for people, call to adventure and search for truth has taken her to Southeast Asia, Europe, Australia and into the poorest communities of Calgary and Vancouver. Through interviews, film, photography and the written word, Ashley aims to use the majority of her work as both a platform and a voice for the unjust and unheard. She loves Jesus, enjoys sipping black coffee, reading novels on the train and running along the Bow River.
