    2017–18 Alumnae Mentor
    2016–17 jGirls+ Magazine Editorial Board

    I was raised in an Orthodox community in Los Angeles and attended Jewish day schools until the age of 16, followed by two years of home schooling. I am currently spending a year in Israel and plan on attending the University of Rochester next year. I enjoy watching Asian television, learning about cultures and religions around the world, and debating a diverse range of topics with friends. I first discovered my love of writing in fifth grade and have since taken numerous classes on poetry, fiction, and nonfiction writing, in addition to publishing two pieces in anthologies. Writing both introspective and academic papers, I explore a variety of subjects in my readings and writings.

    I applied to join the jGirls+ Editorial Board because I love the diversity encompassed by the term “Jewish girls” and I am eager to see the discussions developed by such a variety of people and perspectives. Being a teenage girl is tough, being Jewish is tough, and if we can help each other grow and learn in our struggles through writing, I believe we will better ourselves and the world at large. I’m looking forward to serving as an advisor to the Editorial Board this year.
