Carly: What was your 'Jewish experience' like in college?

Carly: How has your time in Houston been?
Amalia: Houston’s been great! I love the food and diverse culture!
Carly: What has been the biggest surprise about living in Houston?

Amalia: I love seeing my friends and exploring Houston together.
