I never really make resolutions, but this year is poised to be a critical one, so it seems appropriate to set a few goals. America will swear in its 45th president, as our country is more divided than ever. In a few short months, I will turn 30 and while I’m glad my twenties are almost over, I have to admit that my 30th birthday has been giving me some anxiety. So, what to do with this fresh start?
On the civic engagement side, I already have three trips to Washington, DC planned. At the end of February, I’ll join my fellow Hadassah Leadership Fellows to advocate on Capitol Hill for Israel and gender equality in medical research. At the end of April, I’ll be attending the Religious Action Center‘s Consultation on Conscience and, again, will advocate on Capitol Hill for civic rights. In June, I’ll participate in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention‘s Out of the Darkness Walk for the third year in a row. I’m fully committed to ensuring social justice and will continue doing that.
On the personal side, I am going to be posting every day on this site, sharing news items, interesting articles, etc. I’m also aiming to attend a writing workshop this year so I can continue making progress on my memoir manuscript. I’ve also started a new crochet project that should keep me busy for a while.
Here’s to a fresh new year and endless possibilities!
