I graduated from Newton South High School in 2018, and after a gap year will be attending NYU in fall of 2019. At NYU, I shall major in Interactive Media and Game Design and minor in Animal Studies.


My main interests and passions include:

1. Art and creativity

  • I have taken art classes all four years of high school, including honors and AP art, as well as game design and computer 3D animation classes in my school’s media lab

  • My art always has a unique angle; I love thinking about things from a creative perspective, and twisting reality

2. Animals

  • I have volunteered at the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston for three years both as an educator and zookeeper aide. I am very passionate about wild animals, and am interested in zoos, how they can be ethical and important, and the roles they play in our society.

  • I have taken classes at my high school in Sustainability, Conservation Biology, and Environmental Science, in order to round out my knowledge of the environment, animals, and related issues.

3. Other interests include:

  • Geography

  • Judaism

  • Psychology (nature vs. nurture, and what motivates people to do what they do, disabilities & inclusion)

  • Legos and Star Wars
