Anna Reich was a JFEW Scholar at Brandeis University where she pursued History and Education Studies. While a student, she did her internship at the Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County in New Jersey.

JFEW: What has been the most meaningful lesson you have learned or experience that you have had while in college?

AR: Don't try to stick yourself in a box. There's a reason why so many Brandesians go after more than one major. Part of being human and all of the complexity that goes along with that is our versatility, and you never know what else about yourself you might discover if you keep your mind open.

JFEW: What accomplishment during your time in college are you proudest of?

AR: How I've grown. I'm much bolder than I used to be, more able to put myself out there and get more done.

JFEW: What’s the most important thing you learned by participating in the JFEW program?

AR: Many parts of the JFEW program were important to me. It's difficult to choose one thing. The scholarship definitely helped alleviate the financial burden of attending Brandeis. It was also great having a group of supportive peers and mentors. To me, being a JFEW Scholar means being part of a group of young Jewish women who support each other. The internship might have been the most important, since it helped me develop useful skills and to solidify my choice of major.

JFEW: How do you envision your future when you graduate?

AR: I graduated recently and am currently working at a law office. I'm working on law school applications and hoping to go into either family advocacy or intellectual property law.
