My name is Deandre Ellis. I am currently 19 years of age. My favorite activities are playing basketball and football. I was born and raised in Pickens until I went into foster care. I then went to a small group home in Salem, South Carolina, called Tamassee DAR School. I attended Tamassee Salem Middle and High and was in the last graduating class of the school in 2016. I am currently enrolled in Tri-County Technical College majoring in Criminal Justice.
