Alex Estroff, a high school senior at the Weber School, has lived in Atlanta and received a Jewish education his entire life. He is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to study various subjects (particularly English, his favorite) in a Jewish environment at his high school. More than anything, Alex immerses himself in sports, whether it be playing, watching, reading, or writing about them. While he does not know exactly what he intends to do in the future, Alex does plan on majoring in English or literature at the University of Georgia next fall.
