Jayda Pierre, Vice President of Shabbat and Holidays
Hello! My name is Jayda Pierre and I am a sophomore at FAU. I am double majoring in Neuroscience & Behavior and Jewish Studies. My dream is to be an Orthopedic Surgeon and work with athletes. I am also the goalie for the Women’s Lacrosse Club at FAU.
My favorite Hillel event so far has been the Blue & White party because I was able to meet so many people and everyone was dressed up. Through Hillel I have met so many amazing people and been given wonderful opportunities to enhance my Judaism and my career.
This summer I was able to spend six weeks volunteering with Magen David Adom, the ambulance service in Israel, which I only found out about because of the amazing staff here at Hillel. It was an amazing opportunity to explore Israel and bring back pieces of Israeli culture that I can incorporate into future events on campus. I can’t wait for the upcoming year and I am looking forward to creating a fun and welcoming environment at our Shabbat dinners, and hopefully bringing in many new faces!
