Ella Johannes, an intern at #WeRideTogether, brings her writing and communication skills and knowledge of equestrian sports to the team. A lifelong equestrian, Ella has been riding since early childhood and competing in show jumping for eight years. Currently, Ella shows in the adult amateur jumpers around Southern California with her Dutch Warmblood, Jewel Van De Hoek. As a survivor and student athlete, Ella uses her experience to inform #WeRideTogether’s offerings, and to advocate for and support other survivors of sexual misconduct or abuse. Additionally, Ella is able to bring the perspective of one of #WeRideTogether’s largest target audiences to her work, ranging from writing, editing, and creating social media assets, to conducting research. Now at the University of Southern California, Ella is pursuing her B.A. in English Literature.
