Introduce Yourself: My name is Ella, i’m 16 years old and I live in Missouri. When I was younger I used to be super shy when meeting new people, but I now have come out of my shell and can talk to most new people I meet. I am a very athletic person, I dance at my studio called Studio VIE and on my high school dance team. I love my family so much, if i had the choice to hang out with them or my friends I would chose my family. I am an only child but i have four cousins who are like my siblings.
Thoughts On People In The World?: I feel like people today always have their nose in their phones and don’t pay attention to the world around them, everyone is always running from place to place and not seeing what they passed. It could’ve been the best thing that they have ever seen but they wouldn’t know because they were to busy trying to get to the destination.
What are your inspirations & goals?: I’m inspired by the little things in life. Like when someone opens the door for me or goes above and beyond for someone or something that they care about. There is a book called “The Fred Factor” and it tells a story of Fred and how he over achieved his expectations of his job. My goals are to help other around me and to dance professionally.
How would you impact the world?: I would impact the world by being a good role model to everyone and by helping others
Struggles In Life? : sometimes I struggle with being myself. As a teenager I feel like I have this pressure to be like everyone else in my grade when I hang out with them. This year I found my real friends who I can be myself around and we enjoy the same things. For anyone who struggles with this, I recommend finding your true friends and being with them. High school is full of fake friends and people that we don’t need in our life.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : I feel confident about myself but there are parts of me I am not comfortable with yet but I think that will just come with age. No one can change the way they are as a person, the only thing we can do it just to except it and embrace it.
What does love mean to you?: What love means to me is when you have found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with and make memories with them. Love is when you can’t wait to see them at the end of the day and to just be in their presence.
