Eleanor Jeansonne’s fate is written out in the stars as: undecided. She enjoys many hobbies including aerial silks, dancing, thrifting with friends, and geology. While the human eye can see a weakling, she has always been fascinated with chiropractic work and massage therapy, something she is considering for college. Eleanor is a sentimental person, given that her favorite book is the 6th grade summer reading option, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. Her and her friends favorite way to spend a rainy evening is watching old murder mysteries with actors such as Grace Kelly and Cary Grant. She is looking forward to using newspaper as a learning experience for college writing skills.
