This week we're featuring AmeriCorps member Ellen Esling, who is serving her City Year at Figueroa Street Elementary in Watts. Ellen joins our L.A. corps from Carbondale, Illinois where she was raised and attended college at Southern Illinois University. She's passionate about geography and environmental education, especially "connecting others with nature and developing a deeper understanding of our world as represented through research and art." True to her passions, next fall she will begin an MFA program in Interdisciplinary Media Arts.
