They call me Louis Elliot Popkin and I’m proud to serve as your 2016 International Communications Vice President!
I come from the region with the most ruach, Seaboard Region and the chapter with the most juice, Har Shalom USY in Potomac, MD. I’m a member of my school’s film club and ultimate frisbee club, and was a varsity track sprinter for two seasons, as well as on the construction team for my school’s stage crew. I love rock climbing and can be found with a frisbee at every USY convention. Mac and cheese is a lifestyle and a fork is the correct tool to eat it with unless you’re combining it with a quesadilla. I’m also obsessed with puns and other forms of word humor.
My job is to maintain and strengthen USY’s communications and encourage change that’s beneficial to our organization. This year I want to focus on the individual connections that make USY magical. We will accomplish this by making USY feel smaller, yet expanding our membership. However (big plot twist); the simplest way to accomplish this is with a smile. A smile embodies all that communication stands for; its a message that engages someone else. Let’s be the ones smiley enough to change the world.
Peace & Love,
2016 USY International Communications VP
