Elena A.

Always Busy

Co-Founder/Editor-in-Chief/Outreach Coordinator

Hello! My name is Elena, and I'm an Army brat stationed in Florida! I am a high school junior, and I'm super involved both inside and outside my school. I am in my school's newspaper and drama club, and I am a Founding Fellow of Civics Unplugged, as well as a youth reporter for EarthXFilm/Planet 911. I also host a podcast! I'm constantly working on something, from studying for the SAT, to filming Champion invites for CU, to running Bloom and its social media pages! In my very limited free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, crafting, and making music. My biggest advice for fellow MilKids is take advantage of all the opportunities you are given; you never know which ones will change your life.


Bloom takes pride in being a safe, nonpartisan platform for military kids to share their stories and be empowered. All of the opinions expressed in articles belong solely to the author and are not a reflection of the views of the founders and editors of Bloom. Additionally, we understand the struggles and emotions of being a military child, but are not a mental health resource and are therefore unequipped to administer advice and assistance in that area.
