My name is Risa Harris and I am from Queens, New York. I went to SKA for high school, Michlalah for seminary, and am currently in my senior year at Stern College. I am deeply indebted to my NCSY Summer role models, both my advisors and my NCSYers, for playing such crucial roles in my growth. I spent an amazing summer on NCSY Michlelet as a camper and was lucky enough to return as an advisor. It has always been a dream of mine to try and give over a piece of the gift that I have received from them and I am so excited to have that opportunity as a Shevet Glaubach Fellow.
