Dina Ben-Nissan, the editor in chief of social media and photography for the 2013-2014 Youth and Government year has done nothing but blossom into a hardworking and intelligent college student, while maintaining an aura of coolness that every EVY delegate strives for.
How has your life changed since y and g?
What have you been up to?
Do you have any advice to future delegates?
I’m currently a freshman at Syracuse University in New York. I’m also working as a photo editor for a magazine at my school called Juiced Magazine. To be completely honest I don’t think I would have gotten the position if it wasn’t for youth and government. Working as the Editor in Chief of photography and social media on the media team last year helped me gain so much experience when it comes to leadership and working creatively with a group of peers. Youth and government helped me form connections and relationships with so many different people. I don’t think I would be the person I am today if it wasn’t for Y&G or YMCA Camp Whittle (which is an amazing summer camp that everybody should volunteer at). My only advice to future delegates is to cherish every moment you have in Y&G, don’t take anything for granted because it goes by a lot quicker than you think.
