Chaya Mushka Bialo is a JGU member from Oregon where her family are campus shluchim, and she currently attends a Jewish girls’ high school in New York. We interviewed her for an upcoming Spotlight Sunday at Jewish Girls Unite!
In this feature, we will meet a different Jewish girl from around the world each week! Stay tuned for more; and feel free to introduce yourself and start a discussion in the comment section, below!
Q.) What is most gratifying and most difficult about being a campus shlucha?
CMB: Being a shlucha on campus is really an amazing experience. There are always little challenges that come up, but no matter what happens I know that I am the Rebbe’s chosen shlucha and I am proud of that title, and I try to live up to it as much as possible.
Q.) How are you finding high school away from home?
CMB: High school away from home is, Baruch Hashem, great! It is hard to live away from home, and not coming home after school to your parents and siblings and a warm supper, but I know that my family is always there for me from afar!
Q.) Why would you recommend JGU to other girls?
CMB: JGU is the most supportive, warm community that you can ever find!! They help reveal the shining star that is inside of you!! I only have amazing experiences with JGU!!
