Asking Perry Birbrager to pick me up from school to be able to work on USY stuff viii. Made friends with the D.J. at the Atlanta Hawks game 2014 ix. Solved almost as many murder cases as Adrian Monk still counting 6. My Secretarial Ideas i. Gedi Gazette – How do you remember each school year? A yearbook, right? So what if we make an Ein Gedi yearbook, maybe called the Gedi Gazette, so that everyone has a way to remember each year of USY through pictures, articles, superlatives, etc… This would give us a chance to recognize those people in Ein Gedi that deserve awardation for their incredible dedication or just pure silliness within that year of USY! We can also feature all the chapters within En Gedi, congratulating them on the previous year’s

accomplishments and hopefully inspire all the chapters to grow more and more each year to come! ii. AA: Aloners Anonymous– At every event and convention, I always make it my goal to ensure every participant has the best USY-love-amazing-love time possible. I say we should have an anonymous committee in Ein Gedi whose ultimate goal is to make sure that absolutely no one is lonely or left out and everyone is happy! iii. No Clique Zone– One of the main reasons that I love USY, especially Ein Gedi, is the cliché yet so true phrase that we’re a family, or in politically correct USY terms, a mishpacha. This phrase is can only stay if we keep loving each other for who we are as individuals and together as a whole group. So I say, let’s click off those cliques that prevent us from loving everyone! That way, all of our power buttons will be in sync. 7. Personal Statement To the people that I love, I am a hard working, dedicated, creatively passionate, occasionally musical, when appropriate beautiful, young man. I love long bike rides along the beach because it burns more calories than riding on pavement of course, and making crazy sick beats. But most of all, I absolutely love you, Ein Gedi. That’s right, I said it… I love Ein Gedi USY!!! Even though you already know that we are the greatest, craziest, and don’t take no messiest sub-region in HaNegev, I want and I believe that I have the abilities to take us to a whole new level and add even more to make us that much better of a sub-region! The reason for my willingness to push Ein Gedi to a higher level comes from one main personality trait of mine… I have a confession… I am an Ein Gedi Extremist! I bleed and breathe for the EG!
