Adina Smirin was born and raised in Dallas, TX and graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in public relations. At Texas Hillel, she served on the student board and realized her passion for Jewish non-profit work. She spent a summer participating in Onward Israel where she lived in Tel Aviv and interned for a public relations firm. While there, she met incredible people and strengthened her love of Judaism. Outside of work, she can be found baking, hiking, or exploring the city. Adina is so excited to bring her passion and creativity to the Central Florida Hillel family as the Innovation Springboard Fellow starting this August.
