Aliza Cohen ’17: email@example.com
Chattanooga, TN (Signal Mountain, TN if we’re being precise)
pets: Zespi, cat; I used to have a fish named Oscar Pesto Cohen but it died, though it lived a long, fruitful life
favorite Jewish food: crispy latkes with both apple sauce and sour cream in the same bite; this is not explicitly Jewish but it kinda is…I love a good white fish salad sandwich with homemade pickles (here’s one of the best places to find one: http://www.katzingers.com/); my grandmother’s maror also may be the best in the entire world
fun fact: A couple of years ago, I ran head-on into a pole and it really made a huge dent in my forehead and nose. I still haven’t discovered if my nose has always looked this Jewish or if the pole gave me a Jewish nose by leaving a bump on it.
