Caroline Kubzansky, 2015-2016 Rising Voices Fellow.

Caroline Kubzansky is a senior at Washington DC’s Edmund Burke School who is passionate about using the written word to create social change. She is thrilled to be a part of the JWA community and help write “the first draft of history.” On the rare occasion that she doesn’t have her nose in a book or her journal, Caroline loves being outside, editing her school newspaper, and discussing books with her friends and teachers. She will be a first-year at the University of Chicago in the fall.

Wendy Davis

Learning How To Lose

When I think of former Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, the first thing that comes to my mind is her shoes. A fearlessly bright shade of pink, this choice of footwear made headlines across the country when Davis debuted them…at an eleven-hour filibuster to prevent a vote on a bill that would have mandated the closure of most Texas abortion clinics.

The Elements Of Style

Every single morning, I wake up, shake the fog out of my head, and consider what I am going to wear. Almost every day, my outfit is some version of Doc Martens (or, “Docs”) boots, a white button up shirt, and jeans. I somewhat intentionally do not dress like most of the other girls in my grade. I don’t care about looking similar to them, but I do care about my appearance.

Dear Midge Decter

You know the saying: keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Were we to meet, we wouldn’t be enemies exactly, but I doubt that we’d be friends either. While you and I are both female Jewish writers, the similarity stops there. 

Raise Your Hand

Raising My Hand

At sixteen years old, I’m entering that phase of my life in which I have to state my personal qualities fairly often, whether in a personal essay for school or in a conversation at a Yom Kippur break-fast. Depending on whom I am speaking to, my answer varies, but it almost always includes a few basic attributes: I am a reader, a writer, an athlete … and I’m a feminist Jew.
