how should i design my table or what is the alternative? [Resolved]

I want to have a table where i dont want to show data repeated. Every column are meant to be treated differently. should I use different tables or what is the better way to show them. Example:

|-----------------------------|
|Column1 | Column 2 | Column3 |
|--------|----------|---------|
|dolphin | Rakesh   | social  |
|cat     | Dan brown|         |
|        | Ella     |         |
|        | Ella     |         |
|        | Ella     |         |
|        | Ella     |         |

For single column I can have repeated data. On above table Ella is repeated if she had a different column1 and column 3 values, it doesn't look fine. for example:

|-----------------------------|
|Column1 | Column 2 | Column3 |
|--------|----------|---------|
|dolphin | Ella     | social  |
|cat     | Ella     | social  |
|dolphin | Ella     | Introve |
|        | Ella     |         |
|        | Ella     |         |
|        | Ella     |         |

How I can demonstrate it in a table? If I have a data like this: enter image description here

If Ella does not have values in Column1 or Column3, it's redundant (no context and not useful data).

I don't understand the main idea of this data?

What is the objective of presenting it? (I think that the action and visualization must have some purposefulness for the user (e.g. seeing what period is what volunteer is)


My idea for data in table: enter image description here

It's all depends on the relation – if "periods" are corelated with "volunteers"


If not:
