Ellie joined the campaign in the summer of 2019, following her graduation with a distinction from a Masters degree in Migration Studies from the University of Sussex. Previous to that, she received a B.A in French and Spanish at Cardiff University.

Ellie’s social action has focused on working with refugees and migrants, from Student Action for Refugees to the South London Refugee Association, as well as in Greece with Action for Education. Whilst at Cardiff University, Ellie ran a series of supper clubs in which refugees and asylum seekers in Cardiff put on an evening of their own design, as they are tasked with cooking a meal that is cherished in their home country for paying guests.
