Ella Plotkin-Oren is a senior at El Cerrito High School in California. Nothing makes her happier than working at Camp Kee Tov, where she was a long time camper. During the year, she works alongside survivors of genocide to research and disscuss patterns of genocide. She is a very active member of her local Jewish youth group, and interns with StandWithUs. Ella also loves her work as a teen volunteer at UC Berkeley’s public science center, and as a volunteer tutor for fourth graders. Whenever she can find free time, she loves exploring the Bay Area with her two little sisters.
