Her name is Ashly Wright. She is 23-years old and she is originally from Georgia. When I learned that she is in prison for robbery, I was totally shocked. It goes to show that you can't judge a book by its cover. What drove this sweet-looking girl to commit a violent crime? Was it out of necessity, or was she simply at the wrong place at the wrong time? It seems that behind every inmate is a story that is larger than life itself. I think it would intrigue many viewers if I were to produce a television documentary on the stories of prison inmates. Prison documentary series have been done, but none of them has gone interactive. In her own online introduction, Ashly said, "I'm looking for that special someone whom can fulfill my desires, in finding my perfect match. My release is within less than 2 years, and I would love to create a bond with someone that likes what they hear and can relate and appreciate a good woman. My qualities are that I am real. I always stay the same. If I left my body for ten years and came back, I would be identical. I have made mistakes in the past, but I don't dwell on it, I just know that it's over and it has only helped me grow. I'm loyal, dependable, I'm very down to earth. I'm from Georgia, so I grew up with that southern hospitality in my blood. I love to laugh. I am goofy at times, and I know how to have a good time. I love the outdoors. I play softball, go camping, hiking, star gazing (I love the stars), mountain climbing, and willing to try new things. Traveling is also something that I've dreamed of. There are so many wonders of the world that need to be seen and felt through my eyes."
PBS （公視）sure could use a television show such as this one to boost its poor ratings. Let today's teens look at what life is really like in prison, and maybe the show would deter them from committing crimes. To make the long story short, I have come up with a number of ideas to turn prisons into money-making machines for our government. I will be discussing them with all of you in class. You can be the judge as to whether or not these ideas are even feasible. Meanwhile, if you'd like to write to Ashly, please copy down the address below:
