My name is Aviva Beth Kamens and I am thrilled beyond belief to be your next Religion/Education Vice
President. I was born on March 3, 1999 in the relatively small town of Highland Park, NJ, where I lived
until the end of my freshman year, when I moved to my current chapter of West Orange, NJ. I go to
Golda Och Academy for high school, and for elementary, I went to Solomon Schechter Day School of
Raritan Valley. In the summers, I journey up to Camp Ramah in the Berkshires, which has been one of
my homes away from home since I was going into 4th grade. I have one younger brother, who is exactly
three years and one week younger than I am.
I am a huge arts kid. I love to sing, dance, act, and write, and to do so, I’m in our school’s choir, on our
dance team, and take part in some way in our school’s play and musical. I also used to play drums! A
little-known fact about me is that I also do fantasy football, and I’ve made it to the league finals multiple
years. I also attempt to follow basketball, hockey, and baseball, though I don’t always do as good of a
job on those as I do on football.
I’ve been involved in USY since 6th grade Kadima, but I didn’t really get involved until 8th grade
encampment, at which point I became hooked! I am so thrilled for this opportunity to make a
difference, and I can’t wait to get started.
If you need anything from me, call, text, or email me! I’m available 24/6!
