My name is Ruby Stillman, and I am 17 years old. I live in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, a first-ring suburb of Minneapolis. I have loved theater ever since my first encounter with it when I landed a role in Fiddler on the Roof in 6th grade, and I became the president of the Thespian Society at my school this past year. I also co-lead my high school’s social activism club. I really enjoyed organizing our voter registration drive and assembly and working with our mayor and city council to successfully implement real gun reform in our city. Last year, I attended Alexander Muss High School in Israel for two months, and I fell in love with learning about my people’s history and experiencing it hands-on. I am also a USY Emtzanik and a regional general board Tikkun Olam member. When I see a wrong, I must make it right. I strongly believe that “We all do better when we all do better,” and I strive to live my life that way. I owe this mindset to my uplifting and supportive Jewish community that has given me so many opportunities growing up. This past summer was all about giving back to my community by being a counselor-in-training at my beloved Jewish summer camp. Not only has Judaism influenced the way I help others, it has inspired me to live a fulfilling life filled with photography, travel, laughter, truth, and appreciation of beauty. I can’t wait to share it with the jGirls+ community, and I am ecstatic that I found such an inclusive platform that values my voice, and the voice of all Jewish girls.
