Tell us a little about yourself.
I take karate every Monday and Thursday. I have an older brother and a younger sister. 

How did you decide to take on this particular project for Lev LaLev?
I really wanted to help disadvantaged people, especially girls my age, who don’t have as much as me. This seemed like a good idea and it was.

What was the most meaningful part of doing this Mitzvah Project for your Bat Mitzvah?
Getting to help make the girls happy and give them something nice.

Please share any details or fond memories of your Mitzvah Project and Bat Mitzvah.
My friends and family really enjoyed doing the project at my Bat Mitzvah. They really enjoyed being creative with the pencils and writing the heartfelt notes to the orphans.















What are your plans for the future, i.e. life after Bat Mitzvah?
I plan to try and do mitzvahs every chance I get and try to help people whenever I can.

Anything else you would like to share about your experience with Lev LaLev, Bat Mitzvah or Mitzvah Project?
It was a really great experience knowing that we were not only having a good time, but also thinking about others. It made my Bat Mitzvah so much more meaningful.

Please share your advice for a girl looking into doing a Mitzvah Project for her Bat Mitzvah.
Do it, because it gives you a great feeling and you will feel so great afterwards.
