Jewish, yiddishe bocher, still remember all my hebrew and yiddish, learned & spoken since I was 4 years old. Extensively educated, I broke from tradition during junior high. Yes- no lie! Went to college to learn all of the hospitality business, Ended with a food & beverege Bachelorhood.
Once in Cal, I just then started to consider what can I do for other people. On a 2-year hiatus, I was invited to Supervise the Adolescent House of a Drug and Alcohol treatment rewarding, & slowly I learned about other cultures in these United States!
