Ellie plans to make her mark on the world by pursuing a career with non-profits that work with underprivileged children. “Social justice has always been a staple in my life,” says Ellie. “It’s important to me.” Ellie is already involved in a long list of community outreach work, from helping special needs children and mentoring to serving on the board of her synagogue’s youth group. Ellie is also an active member of student government and plays on the soccer team. The senior wants to attend a small liberal arts school in the fall and has applied to eight universities. Ellie started Roeper in kindergarten and says the school fostered her passions and challenged her to grow. “It showed me, if I have a passion, I can do something about it and that people will listen to me.” Ellie is a #RoeperKid.
