    Shep Ashchepkova

    Residence Coordinator

    Shep Ashchepkova is a Communications Studies and Film & Screen Studies Double Major attending Pace University. She was born in Vladivostock, Russia but grew up in Simsbury, Connecticut. In her free time, Shep loves to exercise (especially trying new and weird exercise classes), spend time outside in the sun, eat ice-cream, and her favorite thing of all time is seeing and playing with puppies! Her favorite part of NYC is finding beautiful places to enjoy a balance between the concrete jungle and nature, so if you know of any good secret parks, let Shep know. Shep is very focused on building a unique community full of amazing people from different environments and backgrounds, saying that "EHS is a great place to branch out and meet new people without having to leave your building! It's important to build those relationships here so that you can take your blossoming friendships into the city and experience everything that New York has to offer. New York City is an amazing place, especially in the summer, and EHS has the resources you need to have an incredible time here."

    Resident Advisor

    Elliot Bunche is from Melbourne, Florida and currently attends the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. Before coming to NYC, Elliot was a lead character in the web series Mocha Browns Coffee Lounge, so check it out when you have a chance. Aside from acting, he enjoys football, music writing, and writing scripts for film and theatre. One of Elliot’s big goals this coming summer is to read as many books as he possibly can, with 12 already in his queue. In addition to that he plans to stop by some of the museums, zoos, and, aquariums. Although he enjoys Caribbean and southern dishes, he aims to venture out to some of the local food hot spots to get a taste of something new. Elliot suggests that you make time to enjoy the sights of the city and avoid getting stuck in the hustle and bustle of NYC. “Take a different route home and you will always find something new.”

    Resident Advisor

    Holden Hanna is a Musical Theater Major attending Belmont University, and was raised in Phoenix, Arizona. Holden enjoys pretty much everything! Everything including athletics like hiking, yoga, dancing, and sports to artistic endeavors such as singing, acting, reading, writing, and performing. Holden is always down to explore something he hasn’t seen before, anything new and exciting ranging from seeing hidden talent play a small show in the city or ancient ruins displayed in the museums. It’s all a good time! His favorite part of NYC is the incredible amount of things that are always happening, and the way the city makes you feel faster and more motivated to get things done. “What I love about EHS is that it has allowed me to meet so many people my age who are on a completely different path than me in life, which is amazing! I’ve learned so much and have gotten to meet so many interesting personalities that I will never forget!”
