Ella Ballard YOY 2021




  • Years at the Club: 12
  • School & Grade Level: Ballard High School, 11th grade




“The most important skill to have in this world is the ability to look at a situation through the perspective of others. It has become a habit in our society to put our ego first and to disregard the wellbeing of others for our own personal benefit, molding an environment of hate and selfishness. By overcoming this and listening to those you may disagree with, you can achieve genuine compassion and understanding.”


Meet Ella & other Youth of the Year honorees on February 27!
