In my school, I am on the Varsity Baseball team, and Junior Varsity Basketball team, I also have a passion for politics which I express through Model United Nations.I have been going to USY/Kadima events since 6th grade encampment, and have missed one since(7th grade winter kinnus… don’t get me started). I am a part of the Teaneck chapter, and was even chapter president in the 2019-2020 year. The influences of SA/TO on my life are unmistakable, my favorite charity organization I have ever worked with, is the challenger football program. In this I was a coach for children with learning disabilities, I taught them how to play and the rules of the game which culminated with a game between them.Overall I’m just elated to be able to serve you this year as your SATO and I’m here.
