Hello! My name is Alex Torin and I am an Outreach Coordinator at ZeeMee! I am originally from Santa Barbara, CA, and I am in my fourth year studying psychology. I also enjoy working as a campus tour guide, cooking for Berkeley Hillel, and playing intramural frisbee!
Getting involved in Jewish programs has always given me a sense of identity. From looking after young campers at a Jewish summer camp for four years, holding leadership positions in my Jewish fraternity, or helping organize student events at Berkeley Hillel, I always feel part of this community.
Alpha Epsilon Pi
I joined Alpha Epsilon Pi my freshman year, and have made many great relationships through it over my time here at college. It has allowed me to get involved in many ways, from participating in brotherhood retreats, to organizing a philanthropy event to raise money for charity!
As a Campus Ambassador for my school, I get to lead tours of campus, work inside our famous Sather Tower, and help plan awesome campus events! I was just hired last February, and I love how it really allows me to see and know more about my university.
Studying Abroad in Europe
I am very thankful for the opportunity I had to live and study in Rome! Over my time there, I visited ten different countries, played for my school soccer team, and worked on a vineyard in the Italian Alps. This truly inspired a love of traveling in me, and I hope to continue the adventure soon!
I loved playing a wide variety of sports growing up, but my favorite sport is tennis, which I played throughout high school. I am proud to have contributed to my team's effort to win our league every year, and even almost winning the tournament for all of Southern California!
