Ella is very excited to be a part of the Princess Ever After team—for so many reasons! She began singing at a very early age, dressing up in her princess costumes and wigs and performing for family and friends at every opportunity. She’s loved and been involved in theatre since 2nd grade; her favorite roles being Rondi in Sideways Stories from Wayside School at the Aurora Fox Theater, and Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Lou-Ann in Hairspray, Auntie Em in The Wizard of Oz, and Rapunzel in The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon in middle and high school performances. Ella also started a YouTube channel (B-Silly Ella) in 6th grade, where she wrote, directed, acted-in, filmed, and edited her silly sketches, mini-series, vlogs, music videos, and much more over the years. Her “B-Silly Ella” name derived from her “B-Silly” column in BYOU “Be Your Own You” Magazine, an empowerment magazine for girls, where she told silly jokes and encouraged girls to be themselves and feel confident to show their silly side. As part of this role, Ella conducted live in-person interviews for BYOU Magazine’s YouTube channel with many Disney and Nickelodeon stars, such as Dove Cameron from Liv and Maddie, Peyton List from Jessie and Bunk’d, Olivia Holt from Kickin’ It and I Didn’t Do It, Laura Marano from Austin and Ally, and many more. In these interviews, Ella encouraged popular celebrities to be positive role models to young girls by discussing why it’s important to be yourself and to stay silly and “not grow up too fast.” Ella grew up with these fundamental values of being yourself, valuing yourself, and loving yourself, while highlighting the importance of being positive and kind. In addition to once having her own radio show on Teens of America Radio, Ella now continues to share important self-esteem principles with young girls in webinars, workshops, empowerment panels, and in speaking engagements on local and national stages. Ella cannot wait to make your child(ren)’s day magical, to help them feel good about themselves, and to make all their dreams come true!
