We are excited to announce two new team members joining the ELL family!
Arese Guobadia is a junior studying Chemical Engineering at Rice University. Arese’s hometown is Frisco, Texas and some of her interests include music, food, and hanging out with friends. Arese has a twin sister, an older sister, and an older brother, and loves dogs. Civic and community engagement are some of Arese’s biggest values, especially in our current controversial political climate. Ensuring that one’s own social and political concerns are heard is extremely important. Arese makes sure her political concerns are voiced by participating in local elections. One thing Arese hopes to improve on is becoming more involved in things like attending town/ city halls.
Arese will be working with Margaret L. Wisdom High School and Sharpstown High School.
