Hi, I'm Ella, and I'm a junior double-majoring in English and Anthropology with a minor in French. I'm from Murray, KY, but I spent the first ten years of my life here in Lexington! I hope to earn my PhD in English, and right now, I'm considering pursuing a career in higher education. In my spare time, I enjoy creative writing, reading (I especially like historical fiction and poetry, but I'll read most any fiction), and playing games with my friends. In addition to being a College of Arts and Sciences Ambassador, I'm also involved in Sigma Tau Delta (UK's English Honors Society), Graphite Creative Writing Association, and the Bluegrass Muse Literary Journal. I’m a Chellgren Student Fellow and a Gaines Fellow, a member of the Lewis Honors College, and I’ve been taking ballet classes for around 11 years!
Though I was drawn to UK's outstanding Honors College and its beautiful library, it was the faculty and staff here that truly solidified my college decision. Every professor I have interacted with at UK genuinely seems to care for me, my success, and my well-being. This, along with UK's unique ability to make a very large campus feel like a much smaller one (with all the benefits of a big university), motivated me to become a Wildcat!
If you ever need any help or have any questions (big or small) don't hesitate to reach out! I'm always happy to provide any assistance I can.
