Hi my name is Shira Nimchinsky, I am originally from Houston, Texas but I moved around a lot since then. Now my family lives in Seattle, Washington. I am currently in my senior year in Stern College for Women studying Psychology. I am excited about the opportunities through the Shevet Glaubach Fellowship because in the past years that I have been a Fellow, I was given many new opportunities to learn from mentors and Rabbis. I was also given the once in a lifetime opportunity to connect and make real relationships with teens in Public school who strive and work for growth in Judaism on an every day basis. I have felt extremely blessed to have been a part of the fellowship and hope to continue as a Fellow this coming year to strengthen my connection with the teens, mentors, fellows, and with my own Judaism.
