Hi, my name is Eli Smith. I was born and raised in Idaho in a family of six. I graduated from Idaho Arts Charter School in 2020 and will be attending The College of Idaho to earn my degree in Music Education.  Music is my passion.  Music is something I enjoy but is also therapy as it is one of the main things that has gotten me through difficult times in my life. I plan to continue to work music into my life and create a career out of teaching it.

As a Peer Support Mentor I will be working with adoptees and adoptive parents who are working through sexual and gender identities. I hope to provide understanding, guidance and coping tools for both parents and their children through this process.
