When asked what has been the best part of her life thus far, Ava said ‘coming to Carmel High School’! Ava is enjoying English with Mr. Spurling who is guiding and inspiring her in her writing. Ava has many interests, including painting, acting and looking after Lachie (the family dog). In her Dvar Torah for her Bat Mitzvah, Ava spoke about the concept of silence and how it can be used to enhance or detract from various situations. As Ava enters Jewish adulthood, we know that she has already grasped the nuance of when to talk and when to listen, and is growing up into an empathetic, fun-loving young lady. Mazel tov, Ava!
