Humans of RASG, similar to Humans of New York, is a verbal snapshot of the people who make up our high school. Each human is asked to speak about themselves at length, their monologue is recorded and then transcribed verbatim. In order to keep it real, nothing is left out.
Deborah Winer – Sophomore
“Hi my name is Deborah Winer, I am 15 years old and I go to Hebrew Academy. I have two little sisters: one in 7th grade and one in 5th grade. I love to dance, I dance every single day, it’s the thing that makes me happiest in the world. I’ve been going to this school since I was in Nursery 3, I think. I have been dancing since I was 5 years old and since then I’ve been dancing every single day after school. Sometimes I leave early every day from school to get to dance. I do ballet every single day and I also do another style with it. It’s either contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, tap, ballroom, acro, just many many dances. I also dance on the weekends, every single Sunday. I also go to many competitions throughout the year, I have many shows and I really love to dance and I really find myself with dance and it’s what makes me happy. With my dance team I have won many competitions throughout the year, which are called regionals. First place with many dances, top scoring number, and all that stuff I’ve won. I’ve also won nationally, which means at nationals during the summer, first place with my dance team and it’s been really great. When I compete a solo, I’ve gotten top 20, I think 11th place nationally. This past year I’ve gotten many scholarships and I’m definitely planning on going on the dance track when I’m older, that’s why I do so many sacrifices for it. I really see myself dancing on stage, or in music videos, or with famous people, really just anything with dance I just really see myself doing that. I make a lot of sacrifices for dance during the year. I leave early every single week at least one day, miss a whole period and then make the work up every single week. I also go to many competitions so I’ll miss the Friday or maybe even Thursday before or the Monday after the competition. I love it.”
