Hi, my name is Elyse! I attend Spring Creek Academy in Plano, Texas. I am currently a rising senior who will be graduating with the class of 2012. I am indubitably focused on my career in high school due to my intense passion for journalism and fashion. I was accepted into Cambridge University&s Scholars Program in Cambridge, England where I studied journalism. I also attended Teen Vogue Fashion University last year, and fell in love with the whole concept of working at a magazine. Therefore, since then, my endeavors have included a writing internship with Vanessa Van Petten, and Shawn Edgington. My work is published on their blogs. I&ve also been published in azTeen Magazine, and in a Celebration of Poets. Along with that, I own two businesses. One is a clothing line called L.P.H., and the other is a jewelry line called Juju. High School students would be interested in what I have to say because my experiences have allowed me to garner valuable information at the young age of 17. Hopefully, the tactics I have used to achieve success will help them reap the same benefits, and further propel them into a promising future.
