How Bernard Zell Framed Her Future:
Bernard Zell was a seminal experience in shaping who I am today. BZ helped me understand and take pride in my Jewish identity, and in parallel, I developed a moral compass and strong sense of what it means to live out a values-based life. In combination with a nurturing, creative learning environment, this was a strengthening experience that encouraged me to be an optimist and activist -- using the opportunities I've been afforded to make the world a better place in some fashion and remaining energized in the task in the face of obstacles.
What She's Doing Now:
I am finishing up my senior year at Yale, majoring in Global Affairs. Next year, I'll be starting as a consultant in the McKinsey DC office in the Public Sector Practice. I hope this will be the launching pad for future experiences in government, public policy, and public service and would love to connect with any alumni in this space!
