I’m Shayna Wagner, your 2017-2018 Israel Affairs Vice President! I’m so excited to see our region grow and develop this year, especially in our love for Israel. Pinwheel has been such a big part of my life since I started with Kadima in middle school. Since then, I have been a very involved member in USY, attending regional conventions and Kinnusim, as well as international convention in Dallas, and serving as Seattle Achim’s SA/TO VP. I can’t wait for all of you to love Pinwheel and Israel as much as I do!
During fall 2017 I will be spending 4 months in Israel on Alexander Muss. Despite the distance, I plan on making a big impact on Pinwheel during this time. I will take advantage of being in Israel to find inspiration for programs and keep everyone informed about current events.
Besides from Pinwheel and Israel, I love lacrosse, sushi, board games, and puns. I would love to get to know all of you, and maybe we can even play Monopoly together or go out to sushi! My brother and I happen to have a very extensive Monopoly collection, ranging from Big Bang Theory to the National Parks. During the summer you can usually find me at Camp Ramah in California, or windsurfing and backpacking in Hood River, Oregon.
I’m always open to making new friends so feel free to reach out to me on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to talk about Israel or anything else. I’m looking forward to an amazing year with all of you!
Lots of love,
