My name is Risa Harris, and I am from Queens, New York. I had the privilege of attending SKA for high school and spending a year in Michlalah for seminary. I am currently in my junior year at Stern College studying biology. 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 one amazing summer on NCSY Michlelet as a camper and was lucky enough to return as an advisor this past summer. 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.
