WITN Class of 2021
My name is Elena Contreras and I am 18 years old. I live in Hyde County with my mom. I have two very spoiled dogs and two equally spoiled cats. When I have free time I enjoy drawing and painting. In May, I plan on graduating Beaufort County Community College with my associate in Arts and in June I will graduate high school. In the future, I would love to work with animals.
