Liz Drobiz is from Columbus, Ohio. Her parents and brother emigrated to the United States from Russia in 1997 and made her a first-generation American. She is a rising junior in the IBE program at Lehigh studying financial engineering. Outside of the classroom, Liz is involved in several clubs on campus. She is an analyst for the Lehigh Consulting Club, the treasurer for the Accounting Club, and a volunteer with Challah for Hunger. She also enjoys the outdoors with the Tennis Club and the Outing Club. When Liz is off campus, she loves to go skiing, read a book, play the piano, and travel. Liz recently went on Birthright and absolutely loved the experience. She got to know more about Israel, experience her Jewish heritage, and make lifelong friends both abroad and from the surrounding colleges. Liz’s birthright experience got her interested in Israeli-American politics, and since she enjoys immersing myself in current events and thoughtful debates, she decided to participate in AIPAC 2019 as well. Liz looks forward to being a Hillel peer engagement intern, to getting to know more people around Lehigh, and involving others in Jewish life on campus!

Hi! My name is Jamie Zamrin and I am a sophomore peer engagement intern who is also on the track and field and cross country teams at Lehigh. I am so excited to be a peer engagement intern for this year so I can work to bring more athletes into the Jewish community. I hope that I can bridge the gap between Jewish athletes and regular Jewish students on Lehigh's campus to foster better connections to Judaism and to others on campus for many individuals. I also can't wait to plan programs centered around social justice issues involving the Bethlehem community. I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to meet so many new students at Lehigh and I am pumped to work with all of you this year!
