I am so excited to be joining the Springboard team as the
Lewis Summer Intern for JUF teens and Springboard this summer!
I am from Glencoe and have always belonged to Am Shalom
where I have been able to grow my Jewish belonging and network beyond
friendships within my hometown. I worked at my synagogue as a madricha for
three years during high school. I was able to work with preschool aged children
who were just starting their Jewish journey, all the way through middle
schoolers, who were gearing up for their b’nai mitzvahs.
I spent 8 summers at Tripp Lake camp in Maine There, I was
also able to connect with young Jewish girls from all over the country.
Connecting with these girls from such a young age and continuously growing
relationships every summer, allowed me to make lifelong friends who I still
I am a rising senior at Franklin and Marshall College
studying sociology and anthropology. I intend to graduate this winter and go
off to graduate school where I will be able to get my degree in Social Work. I
hope to work with teens and young adults who are navigating middle school and
high school. Listening to other people’s life experiences, and giving advice,
has been a passion of mine since I was young, and I cannot wait to start that
chapter of my life!
