Michaela Brown, the international president (n’siah) of BBYO, is visiting Pittsburgh this week where she is meeting with members of the Keystone Mountain Region.
Brown, who deferred her first year of college to serve as n’siah, will travel to more than 50 U.S. cities and at least six countries. Her agenda is to promote BBYO’s international initiatives,
including leading campaigns to increase AZA and BBG membership, supporting teen-led efforts to help those in need locally and globally through the BBYO Stand UP campaign and promoting BBYO’s summer travel and service learning opportunities.
Brown’s responsibilities also include serving as a resource for chapter and regional BBYO leaders to strengthen local programming and serving as a voting member of BBYO’s board of directors.
“Michaela is a dynamic leader with a real passion for the Jewish community, which makes her an excellent role model for Jewish teens here in Keystone Mountain Region, as well as Jewish teens around the world,” said BBYO’s senior program director, Chuck Marcus, in a prepared statement. “We are thrilled that she will be spending several days in our community working to help BBYO Keystone Mountain Region reach its full potential.”
In the capacity of president, Brown is joined by male counterpart Mika Stein of Dallas, who oversees BBYO’s young men’s division, Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA). The two also work with eight other elected BBYO leaders from all over North America.
