Ellie Canty

Ellie Canty’s considerate personality will be missed when she leaves for Haverford College next fall. She thinks of herself as “positive and understanding.” This description is backed up by her friend, Ariel Benjamin (‘20), “Ellie brightens my day every time I see her. I have never met someone more caring and compassionate.” Ellie plans to major in Chemistry since she’s always been interested in science. This year she completed an independent study project in which she searched for the DNA markers that can possibly cause cancer. Ellie’s nurturing spirit as a peer advisor and her advanced scientific research explain her interest in medical school. Her love for helping people is surpassed only by her want to explore other cultures and travel the world. Her favorite saying is, “You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy tea.” Ellie is a tea enthusiast and if she had to pick a favorite, it would be Earl Grey. Although Ellie will be in Pennsylvania next year, her optimistic character will continue to be an inspiration for the Webb community.
