Location ACRE BAJA, MEXICO
I’m a country girl from Mississippi, but I’ve been living in Miami for the past three years! I graduated from university with a degree in Marketing. I’m a full time model and content creator, Cat mom, a huge movie buff, and a little bit of a foodie.
How can people stay up to date with you through social media?
Follow me @ashleymariedickerson on Instagram!
What can people expect to see from your social media platforms?
You’ll be able to see a little of my modeling work, content that I create for other brands, travel, as well as a peek into my everyday life.
Can you share insight into the process of creating the platform you have today? What challenges did you overcome and which part seemed seamless?
It definitely doesn’t happen overnight. I would say I’ve been building myself on Instagram for the past five years. It’s all about being consistent and putting out content you think people want to see. The past year, however, I’ve dedicated a lot more time than I ever have. Depending on the week, I usually create content 2-4 days a week, with the other days I spend planning, emailing, and doing other modeling work. It really is a full time job.
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?
On Instagram people see me more put together and glammed up, when in reality, I’m quite the opposite of that person. I love being in the country, horseback riding, riding four-wheelers, anything outdoors.
What’s a goal in your career you hope to accomplish?
I have many goals, but I would say one is having a billboard somewhere and working for the iconic Guess Brand.
What and who inspires you most? Why?
My parents inspire me the most. They’ve achieved so much in their lives, and have always taught me to go after what I want in life.
As an influencer, how do you hope to influence people through your platform?
I hope to influence others to go after whatever they want in life! Whether it’s modeling, traveling, etc.
Who are your favorite content creators?
So many! My good friend @JourdanSloane as well as @Tezza.barton and @Staceytonkes are a few of my favorites.
Are you working on any exciting projects you can share?
None that I can share.
What are three items in your closet you cannot live without?
My biker shorts, Levi’s jeans, and Nike Sneakers!
Essential product in your beauty routine?
I am obsessed with the Hyaluronic Acid Serum from PCA Skin. It is the BEST for overall hydration.
What was your favorite part of staying at ACRE? What activities would you recommend for someone looking to visit?
I loved how it is its own little community. Everything was gorgeous. My favorite part was being able to see the animals and horseback riding!
What does the remainder of 2021 look like for you?
I will be traveling back and forth from Miami to Los Angeles for a bit, but then planning on enjoying the holidays with family for the end of the year!
What advice do you have for someone who aspires to have a career like your own?
I would say go for it! Take inspiration from other creators and then make it your own. I believe the first step is learning what your style is and then start creating!
What would you like to say to your fans?
Thank you for allowing me to do what I love!
