    My name is Alex Berman, and I was born and raised in Manhattan. I’m a member of the class of 2023 at the High School of American Studies at Lehman College in the Bronx, where I am on the track, cross country, and mock trial teams. When I’m not running in Van Cortlandt Park or practicing getting cross-examined, I love to write. I regularly participate in creative writing workshops and writers’ retreats through Writopia Lab, and also act as a teen intern, teaching young writers and hopefully nurturing in them the same love of writing I have. One of my personal goals for the coming year is to dedicate more time to the fantasy historical novel I am writing. My other hobbies include drawing and painting, reading anything I can get my hands on, and playing Dungeons and Dragons.

    "I don’t like doctors’ coats, or pharmacies really. They remind me of why I’m here."

    How the Antisemitism Prevalent in Liberal and Leftist Politics Will Send More Young Jews...

    “American Jews are being pushed out of liberal spaces, the mere practice of our religion somehow interpreted as an allegiance to the Israeli government.”

    Kids Deserve Queer History

    A curriculum that included queer history would incorporate the often-erased stories of queer historical figures, such as Alexander the Great, and important moments in the struggle for queer liberation.
