Mitchell: Where are you from? Sasha: I am from Zürich, Switzerland.
Mitchell: Have you ever been on an international program, either past International Conventions or Summer Experiences? Sasha: I have not. This is my first time meeting global teens.
Mitchell: What did you imagine the United States would be like your first time? Sasha: I didn’t imagine the United States would be so big. There are so many people and big towns.
Mitchell: What do you imagine a day in the life of Matt Grossman (Executive Director of BBYO, Inc.) is like? Sasha: Crazy. A lot of meetings, office work, and phone calls.
Mitchell: If you had to summarize International Convention into one sentence, what would it be? Sasha: Connection of Jewish teen leaders all over the world!
Mitchell: What is one thing you are most nervous for at International Convention? Sasha: I am nervous for my speech at one of the Shabbat Services on Saturday that focuses on the patriotism in Switzerland.
Mitchell: What is one thing you are most excited for at International Convention? Sasha: I am most excited for opening ceremonies and meeting international leaders from around the world.
Sasha has met many new friends and is having the experience of a lifetime! With over 1,500 teens, domestic and international, this has been a record-breaking International Convention!
