Elaina is a military 'brat' that had more frequent flyer miles by the time she was four than most adults!  She has traveled the world with her family, gaining exposure to many different languages and cultures along the way.  She used her years of experience with new schools and the ever so prominent "new kid" status to better the lives of military kids everywhere.  Thus, Sacrifice2 "When One Serves, We All Serve" was born.  Sacrifice2, (sacrifice squared), is a peer to peer support group for military kids to come together and share their experiences with people who understand.  It started in her high school and is slowly but surely making its way through the rest of the district.

She is currently a Junior at Claudio Taylor “Lady Bird” Johnson High School and wishes to pursue a career in Secondary school American History education.  She has taken two years of French, four years of Spanish, and is currently learning both Latin and American Sign Language.  When she's not in class, she can be found in the theatre wing either painting a set or practicing stage makeup for upcoming shows.  She loves community service and hopes her reign will consist of helping the people of San Antonio and promoting her platform.
