What do you consider to be your spirit animal and why? Dory from “Finding Nemo” is my spirit animal. “Just keep swimming” is basically how I’ve started living my life. The places you go and the people you meet are part of your life for a reason. The more you keep swimming, the more people you will meet and the more places you will go!

What is your favorite part of KSU? Getting to experience being on a college campus! I lived at home my first two years of college, and a part of me felt like I was missing out on the real college experience. I am so thankful that KSU has been able to give me that!

You have been involved with Chabad since you started here at KSU. Tell us how this organization has impacted your college career? When I moved to Kennesaw, I didn’t have a single friend. It was something I was really nervous about. I moved to a new place and started a new school without knowing anyone. On the very first day of classes, Chabad was hosting a welcome back sushi lunch on campus. As soon as I walked into that room I felt so welcomed, and I felt like I had found my place. Now I am at Chabad multiple times a week and I have met so many friends through this amazing organization!

You are a big traveler; tell us about some of the destinations that you have visited. I have visited Israel, Greece, and many islands in the Caribbean. I also had layovers in France and Italy…can we count those?!

What is one of your favorite Jewish traditions/holiday? I would say Shabbat on Friday night is my favorite Jewish tradition! All week I look forward to spending time with my friends at Chabad. Shabbat to me is about friends, good food, and looking forward to a day of rest!

If you could visit anywhere in the world right now, where would that be and why? Right now, I would choose Japan! All of my friends know that sushi is my favorite food, and it is on my bucket list to eat authentic sushi made in Japan.

Tell us about your experience on Thursday nights at Kosher Cooking Club. What motivates you to come each week? I started helping Nechami cook for Shabbat back in August. I have always loved cooking and I actually find it very soothing. Cooking is an art for me and it’s always exciting to see what can be created next. I love spending time with Nechami and helping her plan meals, and just getting to hang out with her in the kitchen. I am finally mastering the art of challah braiding!

Favorite Jewish Food? Definitely homemade potato latkes!
