I’m Ayelet, an eighteen-year-old New Yorker. My passions include science, writing (especially creative nonfiction), and staying up too late. I love exploring my many interests and am involved in a ton of extracurriculars, both within and outside of school. These include volleyball, debate, and the Environmental Club. As a student at a Modern-Orthodox high school, where I am a senior, I particularly value the diversity of the jGirls+ community. Here at jGirls+, I am the Department Head of Nonfiction. Each week, I look forward to reading through our submissions and being inspired by your honesty, creativity, and spunk.
