Hi, my name is Samantha Ugolnik and I am in the 7th grade at Emerson Middle School. I have a younger brother, Simon, and my parents are Faye and Adam. Math is my favorite subject in school but I also enjoy Speech and Debate.
In my free time I take long bike rides, I go ice-skating and I love to draw, read and write.
For my mitzvah project, I am learning about gun violence prevention and hope to help bring awareness and incite a call to action among my peers. I would like to thank Rabbi Bassin, Cantor Weiss and Shelly Kamara for helping me prepare for my Bat Mitzvah.
There is nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.
