Hi! My name is Alexis Elles, but I usually go by Allie.  I am now a senior at Willow Glen High School in San Jose.  I enjoy playing tennis, snowmobiling, and playing with my dog, Mandy.  Ironically, I’ve spent the past four years learning French just to travel to a Spanish-speaking country that’s right next to a French-speaking country.  Even though I’m not the most social person in the world, I love to travel and try new things (especially food).  I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and having lots of adventures together as we experience an entirely different culture.
