ASA JUNGREIS OUTREACH DIRECTOR
DIRECTOR OF MARKETING & TECHNOLOGY
STANDWITHUS EMERSON FELLOW
Coming from a family of immigrants who had to flee their home countries because they were Jewish, I’ve understood from a young age the importance of not only my Jewish identity, but the existence of the Jewish State. Israel is a country I will always fight for because it embodies the values I hold dear to my heart of compassion, persistence, and diversity. I’ve been lucky in my life to visit and live in Israel for periods of time, and the feeling upon landing at Ben Gurion Airport is immeasurably special. It’s a beautifully complex and misunderstood country with a rich culture that through AFI and StandWithUs I hope to educate my peers about. These organizations have given me the tools and platform to truly make a difference at UC Davis and why I’m proud to be an Aggie for Israel.
