My name is Madison Delaney Brim and I am humbled to have the opportunity to serve as your Regional President for the 2018-2019 term where together we will redefine engagement through being an inclusive community & focusing this next year on interconnectivity & action. When I’m not dedicating every hour of my life to chapter, regional, & international USY, you can find me dabbing excessively, undersleeping, drinking lots of bubble tea, eating miso soup, & jamming out to a mix of Post Malone, Israeli music, & John Mayer.
I have been in CHUSY since 8th grade, when I fell in love with the relationships & meaningful sichot it served as a platform for. USY has always been my home, giving me leadership opportunities & life-long friends. Belonging to Beth Judea in Long Grove, Illinois, BJUSY has been the place that made it possible for me to become the leader that I am today.
Here’s a little about me! Currently, I’m a student at Stevenson High School where I am a member of National Honors Society and Student Council Executive Board. I’m an avid fan of anything USY related, but I also love Chicago sport teams like the Cubs & Blackhawks and binge-watching netflix shows like Scandal, New Girl, Criminal Minds, & Grey’s Anatomy! In my summers you can catch me up in the beautiful Lake Delton, Wisconsin at Camp Chi with four other members of the Regional Executive Board! I have attended Camp Chi since 2014, and will be returning to be a staff member this upcoming summer for nine whole weeks! When I am not busy with my extracurriculars, I love to read, blog, do yoga, & hang out with friends! Out of all of my extracurriculars, USY has become the most integral to my Jewish values allowing me to grow into the Jewish leader I am today.
As your president, it is my goal to revolutionize the way we approach programming, conventions, & USY to provide USYers with a space they feel comfortable in & leave saying, “When can I come back to CHUSY?”. I can’t wait to begin working to write the best chapter in CHUSY history. The story has just begun, & this year we can grab hold of the chance to better our world to ensure a positive future for the USYers to come. Thank you for this incredible opportunity to serve you & I know we will lay a foundation together for the future of USY here in the Chicagoland area.
B’Ahava (With love),
Madison Delaney Brim
