I can’t wait for a great year on JSO as a Mizzou Jewish Greeks chair! When not at Hillel I love spending time at the Pinnacles, Peace Park, eating Main Squeeze, watching Psych, and playing with my pet fish named Harold! I am also involved in MAB, Phi Mu Sorority, and volunteering at Services for Independent living!
