As a lover of science, math, history and writing (and a licensed cosmetologist!), Ellie, 17, considers herself a Jill-of-all-trades. She joined the Sex, Etc. staff to address misconceptions about sex and help provide information so that young people can make healthy decisions about their sexual health. One of the more soft-spoken members of the Sex, Etc. staff, Ellie always offers unique input. Outside of her academic interests, Ellie is a fan of the web publication VICE for their unique take on reproductive health and willingness to cover topics related to sexuality that she feels are often avoided in media. Music? She is a huge fan of indie-alternative band Vampire Weekend and considers front man Ezra Koenig her role model. TV? Her favorite show is Bojack Horseman.
