Hey there! I’m Abi Cohen, your Hagalil Regional President 2020-2021! This year, as Regional President, I want to create a positive impact and inspire more USYers to engage in our Jewish community. I first began my USY journey when I went to my sixth grade Kadima encampment at the suggestion of my sister’s friend. I continued with Kadima, went on to USY, and instantly knew I wanted to become a leader in this organization at my freshman encampment. For the 2020-2021 year, I will be a senior at Communications High School in Wall, New Jersey. There, I love to study history and computer science. I’m currently a member of Marlboro USY. When I’m not at a USY event or thinking of new ways to bring ruach to the region, I enjoy visiting kosher supermarkets, practicing Hebrew and Spanish on duolingo, and making Spotify playlists.
