National Leadership Program, Spring 2018
Eric Ascher was a Communications Apprentice in the National Leadership Program at RespectAbility, and is now RespectAbility’s Communications Associate. He graduated from Goucher College in May 2016 as a communications major and political science minor. He previously has completed internships at PFLAG National, Maryland New Directions, NIH, Verasolve and StartFinder.
Ascher joined RespectAbility because he knows that people with disabilities are capable of doing great work, just like everyone else. He is excited to help RespectAbility build upon its messaging because he cares about the work that RespectAbility does every day.
Through his coursework and internship experience, Ascher has gained experience writing short and long form blog posts, social media posts and press releases. He also has filmed and edited videos, designed websites and print flyers, proofread documents and completed research projects. In his free time, he enjoys watching and writing about reality talent competition shows, going to concerts and playing video games.
