Ellen is enrolled in studies toward a degree in Spanish Literature. A high school exchange program in Chile sparked her interest in continuing Spanish, while volunteering at a Davis hospital encouraged her to consider medical school or a career in public health. Ellie seems to have a knack for creating travel opportunities. She visited many sites in Spain and Portugal.
Back at UCSD she got an internship working at the Programs Abroad office where she now encourages other students to study abroad. During the 2003 spring break Ellie travelled to El Salvador with a Jewish Peace Corps group on a home-building project. She is in regular touch with her friends in Spain.
