Meet Amalia: Jewston's Mensch of the Month!

Carly: Who are you? Where are you from? What do you do for a living?

Amalia: Hi!!! I’m Amalia! I’m from Denver Colorado. I moved to Houston to work for a nonprofit supporting victims of Harvey.

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

Amalia: I went to CU- Boulder and loved going to Hillel for Shabbat. But, I didn’t create strong bonds and have loved coming to Jewston to create the community I have been looking for.

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: Truly I expected “hicks vill” when moving to Houston. The typical cowboys and tumble weeds. I have been so pleasantly surprised and how massive the city is and how many amazing things there are to do.

Carly: What do you enjoy most about Jewston events?

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