 Hello! My name is Ella and I am a freshman at FAU High School. I'm planning majoring in biology and computer science, and look forward to exploring job opportunities in the medical field.

I have been volunteering for SFTFS for about a month, and I've been really enjoying helping senior citizens, mostly with getting Covid-19 vaccine appointments. Nice to meet you and have a great day!
