Ella Tsonton is a rising senior at Francis W. Parker School, an independent school from junior kindergarten to grade 12 in Chicago. After attending the UMass Summer Design Academy for architecture in 2019, Tsonton knew she would study architecture. She’s inspired by the lines, forms and shapes of nature, buildings and odd structures, which could be construed as having a connection to gaming (she’s into playing as much as watching on YouTube). Ella is an avid KPop fan, plays varsity soccer and has a rescue Maltese named Bubbles, who acts more like a cat than the dog that she is.
