“My experiences at UAlbany have exceeded my expectations. In just my first two years, I have become quite active in student government, interned for Senator Schumer's Albany office, and worked in D.C. for the National Council of Jewish Women. In addition, I was quite fortunate to take part in the American Jewish Committee's Global Forum thanks to the generosity of donors. UAlbany and its alumni have provided me with strong mentorship, internships, and allowed me to explore different career paths which have provided me with a very memorable and significant educational experience."
