Communications Vice President - Daniel Kline
Hi! I'm Daniel, your Communications Vice President. A little about me. I love music and driving fast and energy drinks. I love technology and computers, and I fix them for a job. I'm a senior in high school (the only senior in the entire chapter!) and I stand at a proud 5 feet 5 inches tall. I'm a sugar and caffeine fiend, and sushi is my poison of choice. Despite my addiction to caffeine and sugar, I'm NOT jittery person (most of the time) and I can be very relaxed and easy to talk to. If you ever have any questions or comments about USY, please don't hesitate to contact me, my lovely sister Ariel, or our fantastic Youth Director Steven Doctors.
SATO Vice President - Nate Diamond
Hello , my name is Nate Diamond. I am your SATO advisor this year. SATO translates to Social Action Tikun Olam. I’m a freshman at Coronado High School. I earn honor roll grades and do my best in everything I do. I am very interested in music, and I have always wanted to DJ as a hobby. USY is my second life and my other dream is to make MKT USY a bigger and better chapter each year and help our region as a whole to do better and help communities reach goals and have fundraisers that people actually like to go to and participate in. My goal for this year as the SATO advisor is to raise a lot of money and help the community and valley’s Jewish youth organizations meet and have fun while raising money. -Nate
Kadima Vice President - Shani Shahmoon
I'm Shani Shahmoon, your current Kadima Vice President! I stand at five feet tall and proud of it! My current and past Kadimaniks are at a race to see who can be taller than me by the end of the year. I have a younger brother in Jr. USY and my older sister is doing a USY program in Israel for a year called Nativ. I am energetic, fun, and full of ideas! I have a strong passion for USY and find it to be an amazing organization for Jewish teens. As your Kadima VP, I will be in charge of being at every Kadima event, merging Kadima and USY together, and getting Kadimaniks ready for USY. I plan to teach Kadimaniks Ruach songs (songs in Hebrew), get them as involved in USY as possible, and make sure they have a wonderful time!
