I am in the 7th grade at the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies (LACES). Dancing is my passion. I take lessons in tap, ballet, hip-hop, jazz and lyrical and am  a member of a dance company. I also like to play the guitar and sing; I'm a member of Temple Emanuel's "Soul Singers". Of course, I also like spending time with my friends. My mom is Rosalind Marks and I have an older brother, Logan, who is 20.

My mitzvah project is volunteering at the SOVA Community Food and Resource Program. This program is dedicated to alleviating hunger in Los Angeles. SOVA really makes a difference to the 9,000 people it helps feed each month.

Thank you so much to Cantor Lizzie Weiss, Rabbi Jonathan Aaron and Rabbi Sarah Bassin for all their help in getting me ready for my Bat Mitzvah.
