Education and career[edit | edit source]
"Mean Stinks" contest[edit | edit source]
By 14 Lonski was writing and singing her own songs, much like her idol Taylor Swift. One of her songs, the anti-bullying ballad “Don’t Let Them In,” won the Social Justice Music Award at Elfenwork's 2016 Campus MovieFest. Elle also won the 2013 Seventeen magazine and Secret deodorant "Mean Stinks" contest with her anti-bullying song "Don't Let Them In". Seventeen and Secret had joined forces to create the contest in an effort to banish girl-to-girl bullying. Winners received a free trip to New York City, New York, and the opportunity to star in a video. Elle's video was filmed in the Hearst Tower in New York City, home of Seventeen's offices.
The song also won the Social Justice Music Award at Elfenwork's 2016 Campus MovieFest. It earned Lonski a $2,500 top prize and trip to the 10th anniversary “Elfenworks In Harmony With Hope” awards ceremony in San Francisco.
She wrote the song because, "I wanted to let people know not to let in bullies in the first place," "They are looking for that reaction, but if you don't let them know they bother you, they move on." Some of the song's lyrics are, “The harder you try, the harder you fall / it's not gonna help you out at all / don’t let 'em in, don't let 'em in / don't let 'em break your heart."
Scholarship[edit | edit source]
In 2015, she won an Abercrombie & Fitch Anti-Bullying Scholarship Award, an award created as part of its global anti-bullying campaign. The program was established by Abercrombie & Fitch Co. and the National Society of High School Scholars Foundation (NSHSS). The scholarships are awarded to high school seniors who thrive academically despite bullying, and to student anti-bullying activists. She competed against nearly 1,500 other students for one of ten awards.
Discography[edit | edit source]
In addition to "Don't let them in," in 2015 Elle released her award-winning debut EP “Helium.” In 2019, Elle released her first full-length album, “Brainwaves,” a 10-track collection of stories about relationships and the joy, sadness, anger, regret, envy and laughter they bring. This album follows three singles that were streamed 20,000 times on Spotify.
