Ella Freeman is a second-year journalism student. This is her second semester on The Spectator staff. When she is not attending class or studying Ella can be found in your local thrift store, pretending to be mysterious in a coffee shop, on the nearest hiking trail, forcing her roommate to watch Marvel movies or screaming Taylor Swift songs at the top of her lungs.
