"I was teased and bullied a lot because of my speech impediment and my weight."

Ellen's biggest obstacle to overcome was when she was 12 years old...

The most difficult thing I had to encounter in life is my depression that hits me sixth grade. I was teased and bullied a lot because of my speech impediment and my weight. I grew more depressed in sophomore year of high school because all throughout my life there was a lot of drama going on with the groups I'd hang out with. I eventually said, "Enough is enough." So I removed myself from the friends that were toxic for me. And now, I'm a much more happier person than I was before. I felt free and I felt like I am myself. Because I feel like we are meant to be unique. However, when in groups we don't display our uniqueness.

Ellen's biggest inspiration is...

My biggest inspiration is my third oldest sister, Dani, because she's like my best friend. She's always there to support me whenever I need help with anything. She's always guiding me down the right path as well. Even if she's living across the country, she's still always texting me back and skyping with me to ensure that I'm still okay.
