My name is Elise Anstey and I am 17 years old and a senior at The Bush School in Seattle, Washington. I am the leader of Social Committee club at my school. We plan four school dances every year: Homecoming, Winterball, TOLO, and Prom. Social Committee also fundraises for these dances and chooses the venue, DJ, photo booth, and more. Outside of school, I work at Pagliacci Pizza where I make pizzas, salads, run the register, and hand out slices. Outside of work, I enjoy taking portraits of my friends for fun as well as senior portraits. I also volunteer at Teen Feed, an organization that provides meals for homeless youth every night of the year.
I am excited to be back as a staff photographer for jGirls+ and to help shape this role for future years. This year I hope to grow as an artist and to produce powerful images that anyone can relate to.
