Ella is 13 years old. Ella's picture is a self sketch that she did on her sketch pad with grey led pencils. Sketching is her love as she finds this as a way of escaping her dyslexia. 

Ella says “Sometimes it’s hard to manage my dyslexia and for other people to accept it. So I put a mask on so I feel at ease with myself.”
