Spotlight On Our Student Dana

This week our student spotlight turns to Dana in Grade 8. Dana has been an ISR student since Grade 1 and she is a Senior Prefect in the Social Responsibility Department of SLO®. But beyond life at ISR, Dana has a passion for dancing and competitions.

Earlier this month, Dana competed in “Jewrovision”, a competition for young aspiring Jewish performers aged 10 to 19 who compete against each other with an overarching theme of Jewish heritage. Dana practiced with her team for 3 months with a choreographer and a vocal coach to put together a dance and singing routine under the theme of Chai (or life in Hebrew). 1,500 competitors from Jewish youth centers across Germany gathered in Frankfurt and performed their pieces in front of a panel of judges, including 2018 Eurovision winner, Netta Barzilai. Amazingly, Dana and her team finished in an impressive second place! This is quite an achievement!

We are proud to spotlight Dana, one of many of ISR’s outstanding students!

Our “Student Spotlight” project aims to highlight every Friday one of our outstanding students who is, appropriate to this year’s theme, “Staying Ahead”. No matter if academic achievements, special commitment, or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
