Elisha lives in Suwanee, Georgia and will be graduating from high school in 2022. Her motto is: “I was born ready.” Elisha wants to make sure people think about what is possible when thinking about supported decision-making vs guardianship. She serves on her Church’s Guest Services Team and enjoys helping people, learning about technology, and playing sports. She is learning the acoustic guitar and wants to become a Zumba instructor. As a youth ambassador, she wants everyone to know: “You can make your own decisions with support.”
For her showcase, Elisha introduced the work she did with the Georgia Advocacy Office. This included making a pamphlet to let people know about their rights and choices. She plans to distribute it to doctors’ offices, schools, communities, and churches.
