My name is Becca Stoll and I am just finishing 7th grade at Campbell Hall. I love art, music, writing and just about anything that requires creativity. This year I’ve discovered many new things I love such as my sculpture class and listening to music on my record player. I also played volleyball and for the first time this year I ran track. I like to spend time with my friends going to flea markets or the beach. I can’t wait to get back to my favorite place, Camp Schodack, for my 6th summer. I am the youngest in my family of six: my Mom and Dad, Lisa and Adam, my sister Lauren, my brother Ben, and our dog Ryder.
For my mitzvah project, I volunteered with the California Native Plant Society. I planted California Poppies, mulched and weeded the garden at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center. The garden is beautiful and overlooks the Pacific Ocean in Rancho Palos Verde. I learned about the plants native to our Southern California coastline and how rebuilding and caring for this garden helps provide a home for endangered species. If you’d like to help you can find more information at www.cnps.org.
I would like to thank my parents, Rabbi Aaron, Cantor Weiss, Allison Bluestein, and especially my mentor, Laurie Goodman for helping me prepare for my Bat Mitzvah.
