Ashley Saulog

Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) in Indigenous Development

Ashley Saulog Ashley is a Filipino- Canadian who was born and raised in Winnipeg. Ashley’s parents immigrated to Canada in the 1990s. When Ashley was growing up she became conscious that there were certain barriers that influenced the health and wellbeing of minorities in Canada. The curiosity of learning more about these barriers inspired her to obtain her Bachelors of Health Studies with a minor Anthropology at the University of Manitoba. During her undergraduate program, Ashley volunteered with Winnipeg Regional Health Authority which flourished into a strong relationship with the culturally diverse, Inkster and Seven Oaks community. Ashley is currently working with Indigenous and Newcomer Youth with a non-judgmental, harm reduction, and trauma-informed perspective. Her focus is on providing information, programing, and services for Indigenous and Newcomer Youth about mental health and reproductive health.

Ashley is grateful and excited about joining MDP 2018 Cohort. Her goal in this program is to gain skills that will allow her to reach out to the youth across Canada and the rest of the world.
