My parents and I are B'al T'Shuva (born secular but became religious). Since then I have been to a Jewish kindergarten school, a secular middle school in the Santa Clarita Valley, and a Jewish high school in San Diego where I lived with my family rabbi. After graduating I spent two gap-years in a yeshiva in Jerusalem, Israel, where I dedicated two years to learning about my religion and finding my perspective, which brought me back to Santa Clarita where I am continuing my education process.
