About Me

My name is Elyna (Ee-Lee-Nah), I like to do things. I'm always looking to meet anybody passing through my neck of the woods and give you a roof if you need one. I am a graduate student at UGA and my schedule is usually a bit crunched, but give it a try and shoot me a message if you're around!
