  • Senior, Jewish Studies major

One of my life missions is to be a lifelong scholar. At UWM I was privileged to continue that dream as a Jewish studies major. I studied art, literature, history, culture, and my favorite book- the Bible. After graduation, I plan to continue these studies with my extensive book collection. I also hope to work for a faith-based advocacy organization to combat antisemitism and anti-Israel hate. During my time at UWM, I have been blessed to study under incredible professors. Professor Baum helped me develop essential research skills and the ability to understand topics from multiple perspectives and through various mediums. My Hebrew professor, Professor Yael, has become a professor I consider a friend. She has given me a rich understanding of the Hebrew language and Israeli culture while encouraging me to grow in my strengths.
