I am in the 7th grade at The Harvard-Westlake School. I like dancing, tennis, volleyball, fashion, debate and photography. My parents are Nancy and Stephen Paul and I have two older brothers, Spencer, who is 17 years old and Matthew, who is 15 years old.

My favorite place is Camp Pinecliffe, where I spend the whole year looking forward to these 7 weeks of summer camp. For my mitzvah project, I wanted to bring cheer and good wishes to sick kids who love camp as much as I do.  My camp friends and I designed tote bags and created personal cards for hundreds of kids at Camp Round Up River Ranch, a camp for children who are very sick and want to enjoy having a fun camp experience while not thinking about their illnesses. The tote bags are a way for them to bring home their memories of their summer experience.

I would like to thank Rabbi Aaron, Cantor Weiss and Shelly Kamara for helping me prepare for my Bat Mitzvah.
