Ellada pursued her interest in finance by attending King’s College London to study international political economy. Coming across BlackRock during her internship search, Ellada was attracted to the firm’s global reach and emphasis on teamwork and collaboration. Her internship experience was so rewarding that, upon graduating, Ellada returned to BlackRock in a client-facing role.
