Hi! My name is Leah, and I am a junior in high school. I attended the Brandeis Precollege Genesis program for the past two years, where I focused on courses in social entrepreneurship and world religions. I loved everything about my time at Genesis, both when I participated in person at the residential program, and when I participated in the online session. I’d love to talk with you more about my experience, and why I love this program!

Genesis Alum

Hi! My name is Ari Rosenblatt, and I am a high schooler from the San Francisco Bay Area. I am very involved in my Jewish community; which includes NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth), and the RAC (Religious Action Center). This past summer, I participated in the 2020 Precollege Genesis program, and absolutely loved the entire experience - as it was transformative for me in so many ways. Overall, I'm really passionate about Jewish life and culture, and would highly recommend attending Genesis if given the opportunity. I'm happy to speak with you more and answer any questions about the Precollege programs!

Hello! I am Josiane Uwumukiza from Rwanda, a country of a thousand hills in the heart of Africa. I attended the 2020 Brandeis Genesis Precollege summer program. During this online session, I focused mainly on the Creative Writing course because writing has always been my passion. And so far, I have been able to publish one story book. Currently, I major in Mathematics, Biology, and Chemistry at Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology in Rwanda, and am hoping to pursue Computational Biology in College. I look forward to speaking with you more about my Precollege experience!
