When 18-year-old Ella Burnside—event chair and champion of a cause shared by women everywhere—took the podium at Taking on Goliath October 20, she answered the question on everyone’s minds: No. She is not a survivor of domestic violence, sexual assault or child abuse. How this fierce young dynamo came to embody the biblical David slaying the giant began, of all places, in a classroom!
It’s one thing to say you’re going to do something, it’s another to actually do it. That’s the lesson Ella Burnside took from her English class at Christian Academy and one she’s become an example of through her work with Taking on Goliath, a fundraiser for the Joyful Heart Foundation.
