My history (100 words max): Born and raised in the northeastern United States, with a brother and sister. I was always drawn to medicine, and became an EMT when I was old enough. I've traveled around the country volunteering at free clinics and trying to learn as much as I can from everyone I've met. It has been a spiritual journey, and deepened my religious beliefs. I look forward to attending graduate school to become a Physician's Assistant
Family history (100 words max): My grandparents came from Europe to Springfield Massachussets at the begining of WWII and my grandfather immediatly joined the air force. My father has brought traditional music and customs into the lives of my siblings and I since we were children. Yiddish music was common on long car trips
My connection with Israel: I have never been to Israel, but look forward to the day I am able to go. I feel a strong connection with those in Isreal, especially the emergency medical providers
What I would take with me to a deserted island: My dog, a hammock, a good book, and some vegetable seeds to start a garden
If I could have dinner with any person in the world it would be: Walt Whitman
What angers you: Anti-Intellectualism, lies, and complacencey
What makes you happy: Gardening, kayaking, swimming under the stars, unexpected kindness, spreading knowledge and my love of learning
Last book I read was: The Road to Delphi, by Michael Wood
Comfort food: Peach Pie!!!
My life five years from now: A Physician's Assistant, hopefully with the freedom to travel during my spare time... and a house with a yard and lots of dogs!
You may not like it but I have something controversial to say: Peace may only happen when there is a mutual respect for life, learning, and the earth, by all parties. The US's proposed ban on Isreali Universities and students will only worsen the situation in the middle east, and ought to anger Jews everywhere. Jewish students, and progress, should not have to suffer for the actions of a few ignorant and angry extreamists
Happiness: 1-10 (10 being the happiest) 7
