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, and their monologue is recorded and transcribed verbatim. In order to keep it real, nothing is omitted. This week, the Warrior Word interviewed Noam Cohen (11th). Get to know Noam as she discusses her transition to Miami and Hebrew Academy as well as what she enjoys doing out of school.
"Hi, I'm Noam Cohen, and I recently moved to Miami from Israel. The beginning of the move was quite challenging as I came to a new school in the middle of the year and socially, adjusting as an eleventh-grader was tough. However, once you get to know everyone, they're really nice here. I like the school; it's definitely an adjustment, but the people are welcoming. My favorite class is probably Anatomy and Physiology taught by Mrs. Jaimes. I find it really interesting. Fun fact—I initially wanted to be a doctor, but I gave up on that dream. I have two siblings; my older half-sister is 27 and has lived in Brickell for the past four years, and my brother is 22, living in New York City. Both of my parents are currently in Israel, bringing all our stuff to Miami. I have a toy poodle named Dior, who will be coming with my parents to Miami. Hopefully I can get another dog soon. My hobbies include yoga and pilates. I love hot yoga and have been practicing for the past two years. I'm not a fan of cardio; I prefer more mellow activities. Besides that, I enjoy spending time with my friends. I'm a pretty low-key and low-maintenance person. I don't like doing crazy stuff; I'd rather sit with my friends, chill at home, cook, and do fun things together. I'm definitely a homebody. Beyond that, I get along with pretty much anyone, but it's essential to me that my friends and I build a good foundation for our friendship, always being honest and kind towards each other."
