Hi, my name is Elleson and I'm from Chicago, IL! I'm on a gap year for the 2021-22 school year. I'm looking to travel to France for the remainder of it to work and visit! I studied French for 10 years throughout elementary and high school but stopped about 2 years ago. I picked it up again recently and I am now looking to continue improving my French and immerse myself in the French culture!
I'm an easy going person, open-minded, caring, independent, and very much spontaneous! I'm also not afraid of hard work and I love the satisfaction of a good challenge. I also am an attention-to-detail person and very organized and will treat any home or living space like I would mine. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, playing/listening to music, kayaking, being active, and overall spending time outdoors. I play tennis and a bit of volleyball as well. Growing up in Chicago, I am used to all 4 seasons--wind, rain, snow, you name it--so worrying about any activity in any weather is never an issue for me. I also love being in or by the water, especially the beach, as Chicago has a large lakefront with multiple beaches. I also adore being by the mountains.

I also help my dad fix up apartments (painting, replacing lightbulbs, fixing light switches, replacing balcony screens, etc) that he rents out.
