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 making homemade acai bowls, walking around Lake Baldwin, or exploring the city. Adina is so excited to be a Springboard Innovation Fellow and a member of the Central Florida Hillel family!
