Marissa Bendit
Co-PresidentHometown: New York City
Growing up I knew that New York City did two things better than anyone else, Theater and Jewish Food. Both of these things were formative in making me who I am today. After working in the theater industry in New York, I decided to pursue my MBA and found the unique opportunity to reconnect with my Judaism and provide opportunities for my peers to connect with their faith and hopefully introduce my peers to the wonders of Jewish cuisine and culture.
Bianca Ioschpe
Co-PresidentHometown:

Being Jewish has always been an important part of my identity. Some of my happiest childhood memories are around a seder plate, or chanting in prayer with my family during Shabbat. Prior to my MBA, I spent 6 years in New York City working in the Retail industry. Today I am proud to be a representative of the Jewish Community at the Fuqua School of Business.
