Humans of RASG: Shalev Bachar

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 Shalev Bachar (12th). Get to know Shalev as he discusses his experience on the student council as President, and his hobbies. 

"Hi, my name is Shalev Bachar. I’m an 18-year-old Sephardic Jew and a senior at Hebrew Academy, which I have attended for 13 years. I love being a senior, as we get a lot of privileges, and the teachers respect us more, allowing us to be role models for the younger grades. However, being a senior can be challenging. For example, it was a tough decision for me to choose whether or not to go to Israel [next year], but I decided to go in the end. It's also challenging for me to decide between going to FIU or YU, as they are two completely different routes. However, I trust myself to make the right decisions. Another thing about me is that I'm the president of the high school student council, and I have been in the student council since middle school. During middle school, I had friends on the student council whom I would always reach out to for suggestions. In seventh grade, they suggested I join the student council, and that's when I got involved. Currently, I am planning something big to have a traditional send-off at the end of the year. I don’t have the exact details right now, but it’s going to be awesome. I've already contributed some ideas to the student council, such as the morning announcements and the game tickets. We have many more ideas and activities coming up this year. Outside of school, I play sports like basketball and soccer and have an interest in creating things like websites and other projects. Of course, all of this can be overwhelming, so at the beginning of senior year, it was stressful. However, I know how to manage my time so that I can focus on one thing at a time, preventing all my work from being cramped together."
