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 Simcha Rosenberg (9th). Get to know Simcha as he discusses his adjustment to Florida and his love for basketball.
“Hello, my name is Simcha Rosenberg. I’m a 15-year-old Ashkenaz Jew. I came to the Hebrew Academy in sixth grade from RYNJ in New York. Five years ago I moved from the Bronx Riverdale, New York, to Miami. I didn’t know I would be moving because my parents told me there would be less than a five percent chance that we would be moving to Florida. I was kind of young so I didn’t care. I have adjusted well to Miami since I was so little. I prefer Miami over New York anyway; the weather is much nicer. One thing about me is that I like to play sports. I play basketball, a little bit of tennis, a little bit of football, and golf. I’m on the Varsity Boys Basketball Team, and I started playing seven years ago. I’m in hard classes so I balance my time accordingly. After school, I play sports, then I stay up late to do work and I have tutors who help me in classes such as AP Human Geography and math.”
