    Hi! I’m Orli Adamski (she/her), a member of the class of 2025 at The Nightingale-Bamford School in New York City. I am passionate about social justice, art, literature, and wildlife conservation. I’m a member of my school’s environmental board, the co-Editor-in-Chief of Philomel (our literary magazine), and a contributor to The Atom (our science magazine). In my limited free time, I can often be found in the library, participating in school theater, taking photos, engaging in loose philosophical debates with friends, and listening to and making music. I sing in my school’s chorus and chamber chorus and love 80s alternative rock, much to my parents’ delight.

    At age seven, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), which affects my life every single day. I volunteer and work with JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Center) in the hope of improving the lives of those with T1D until there is a cure. In 2023, I had the opportunity to attend the JDRF Children’s Congress in Washington, D.C. as a NY delegate. I met with my members of Congress to advocate for insulin affordability and research funding and to share my story. Above all, I think sharing stories is incredibly important, and it is an honor to help the jGirls+ community share theirs.
