My self-summary
Ever since a young age I have pushed myself to achieve everything I set my mind to, however I grew up with barriers that allowed me to have a deeper gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful opportunities life afforded me. These adversities gave me a zest and love for life and a compassion for others I don't think I would have developed if it was not for my obstacles. I was also fortunate to have a support system that taught me how to have a voracious love for life no matter the circumstances. I sincerely believe we choose a life of hurtles that we know we can handle and once I realized that the greatest love I can find is within myself, I can now look for a compassionate bashert who can compliment that love. If I still have your attention, the rest of this profile will make you fall in love...

Every day I live life to the fullest. I look for extraordinary in the ordinary. I believe that wherever I am in life, it’s perfect and there is an opportunity to share something remarkable. I live in the moment, I enjoy the spontaneity of life, and I cherish the friendships I have made along the way. I am inspired by so many of the stories people share because everyone has something significant to contribute to this world.
What I’m doing with my life
I wake up each morning knowing that today is going to be the best day ever and I know that I will positively impact the lives of those around me.

I came to NYC for School Counseling because I had a desire to change the lives of children, particularly in inner cities. I strongly subscribe to the ideas of James Garbarino who teaches us how as educators we have the rare gift of being a positive influence in children's lives or what he calls a protective factor because we give them the tools they need to believe in their dreams!

My new found love is meditating, listening to empowering TED talks, and throwing parties in my apartment because I love cooking for people and entertaining! I have a strong yoga/cardio strength training practice, love swimming, taking Jewish classes, and going to synagogue. I stay active in social activities, live music, and constantly stay connected to a large network of friends I have made in my travels across the globe. I have never bought a video game, I have no patience for watching tv, and listen to NPR everyday. I have enjoyed journaling since I was 18 and I am finally writing a memoir.
I’m really good at
I have a strong drive to learn new things and taking that knowledge to teach others, especially children.

I have worked really hard at finding space to allow myself to be vulnerable. I think it is important for men to be able to share their vulnerability even though society teaches males to show emotional control. To quote Berne Brown “You show me a woman who can actually sit with a man in real vulnerability”.

I am also really good at laughing, especially making myself laugh. I have a really good memory for things and so as I walk down the street of NYC letting the mind race through events of the week and life, I find I crack myself up all the time. About once a day the memory is so funny it makes me laugh out loud! Love those moments!
