I am a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, currently studying Jewish Studies. I am from Shorewood, Wisconsin. I enjoy hanging out with friends and photography. Judaism is a big part of my life; I go to temple and I have gone to camp for the past eleven years. I really enjoy attending events at Hillel and meeting new people. I am looking forward to some great programming this year at Hillel and grateful for this opportunity. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Peer Network Engagement Interns
My name is Jesse Duchon and I am a junior studying architecture at UW-Milwaukee. I grew up in Edina, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. Before college, I participated in BBYO in the North Star region and was fortunate to attend Jewish youth camps such as Herzl camp and Camp Teko where I built strong Jewish connections that I still value today. Entering college, I lacked connection to the Jewish community and found it hard to practice Judaism during my first year at UWM. After meeting a Jewish student who invited me to a Hillel event, I was warmly welcomed and instantly met other Jewish students, finding a sense of community far from home. Today, Hillel is a very important part of my life, and I am honored to represent Hillel and the Jewish community as an intern for Hillel. I am eager to meet new students at some exciting Hillel events this year. Feel free to contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org!
My name is Jake Hoffman and I’m a sophmore at UW-Milwaukee pursuing a degree in Communications. I was born and raised in Golden Valley, Minnesota and graduated from Hopkins High School in 2011. I love Ultimate Frisbee, the outdoors, hanging with friends and drawing. I have been active in Jewish organizations like NFTY and BBYO since I was in junior high school and I attended Camp Herzl for 2 years. Being from Minnesota, I wasn’t sure where I could find a Jewish community in Milwaukee. However, Hillel was incredibly warm, fun, and welcoming to me my freshman year at UWM so I’m thrilled to be a student intern this year. Meeting new, different people is one of my favorite things to do so if you’d ever like to talk, I’d be more than happy to chat with you! You can contact me at email@example.com.
My name is Talia Schumacher and I am a sophomore at UW-Milwaukee where I am majoring in social work. I am from Golden Valley, Minnesota, where I was very involved in North Star Region BBYO in high school, which paved my love for being involved with Jewish organizations. Because I go to college away from home, I made it a point to get involved in the Jewish community and meet other Jewish students on campus. Hillel has an extremely welcoming community that I am proud to be a part of. I am so excited to be a student intern this year at Hillel so I can welcome new students. I love meeting new people and making connections, so please feel free to contact me anytime! My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
