Hi, my name is Ella Briggs, and I am a 5th grader at Ana Grace Academy of the Arts in Avon, CT. I live in East Hampton, CT with my parents, my sister Riley, my two dogs Ace and Sammy, and my cat Otis. I like to hang out with my friends, cuddle my dogs, and make people laugh. I enjoy singing and dancing, and I really enjoy learning about all different kinds of animals– especially snakes. As a leader, I am kind, empathetic, determined, and very passionate about helping others.
