Elena was in 9th grade and attended Upper Sandusky High School where she played tennis. She was very competitive and even said that she could beat Serena Williams if she were given the chance. She was always bubbly and had an infectious laugh. She was very outgoing and adventurous, loved to travel, and especially loved going on cruises and spending time on the beach. She also loved all genres of music and dancing.
Her fiery spirit will always be remembered just like the red streak in her hair.
