Davinica, South Jersey
Davinica went to a small arts college with less Jews than there are fingers on her hand. Even though she was in Philadelphia, her university experience did not include Jewish connection of any kind. She also grew up in a family with multiple religious identities, so she was unsure of where or if she fit into the Jewish community. That changed senior year when she saw a post for an internship with Tribe 12. What started as a professional opportunity soon became much more. During her internship, she learned about the many organizations with whom Tribe 12 partners, so when a space became open in the local Moishe House she applied and was soon the newest resident! She became a Tribe 12 Fellow in 2018 where she made lifelong friends and, just to complete her Tribe 12 bingo card, joined the organization shortly afterwards as a staff member!
