Hej! My name is Elena, but most people just call me Ellie. I live in Marietta, Georgia with my brother, mom, dad, dog, and three cats. I am a sophomore at George Walton Comprehensive High School, also known as Walton High School, and I participate in the school’s STEM engineering program. My favorite subjects include: Engineering, AP Government, and AP Government Comparative. In my free time, I like sketching, painting, singing, playing guitar, acting, and anything else that allows me to be creative. I also love to do anything adventurous, especially horseback riding as I have been riding for the past ten years of my life. It is also not uncommon to find me watching movies, as film has been a big part of my life since I was a kid. My love of film is one of the reasons that I’m interested in foreign exchange. By watching movies, I was always exposed to other worlds and cultures which made me want to find an adventure of my own. Ever since I learned that foreign exchange was an option, it has always been a dream of mine to study abroad. I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity to get to know a bit about the world and to represent my country as a youth ambassador. I am really looking forward to learning a new language and getting to explore another country! This will be my adventure for the next two or three years and, although it will be tough at times, I know I can do it. I cannot wait to study abroad and will continue to count down the days until my departure.
