Fiolek of family moved to St. Augustine for her to attend the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind, the largest school of this type in the United States.

CHAMPION OFVOCATION. Cuando nació, los médicos alertaron a los Fiolek que su hija era diferente al resto de los niños. At birth, doctors warned the Fiolek that her daughter was different from other children. Pero ellos se negaron a tratar a Ashley como una persona discapacitada. But they refused to treat Ashley as a disabled person. Al contrario, se preocuparon de que la pequeña supiera que su sordera absoluta–no puede escuchar siquiera el ruido de un motor de avión encendido a su lado– no le impediría lograr sus objetivos en la vida. Instead, they worried that the little she knew that her deafness absolutely can not even hear the sound of a jet engine on his side-not prevent him from achieving their goals in life.Con sólo tres años su padre, fanático del motociclismo, le compró su primera moto y le diolas lecciones iniciales de conducción: aprendió a guiarse por las vibraciones del motor para pasar los cambios ya observar las sombras para saber si sus rivales vienen detrás.

El talento de la niña en este deporte se hizo evidente muy pronto: en 2004, a los 13 años, ganó el campeonato de motocross amateur más prestigioso de los Estados Unidos y la Asociación Americana de Motociclistas (AMA) la nombró “Piloto joven más destacada del año”. The child's talent in this sport soon became evident: in 2004, at age 13, won the championship most prestigious amateurmotocross in the United States and the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) was named "most outstanding young pilot the year.
