Alma, 11, California

“I love art, fashion, writing, history, social studies, going on the computer, and annoying my siblings. What I hope to do on the Design Team is make some new Jewish friends, read and review some great new books, and learn some new skills.”

Asher, 9, Pennsylvania

“I love sports, art, and reading. My favorite sport is football. I hope to make lots of videos because they are fun and so other people will want to read PJ Our Way books.”

Cayla, 9, Colorado

"I love reading, soccer, and telling and listening to jokes. What I hope to do on the Design Team is to make it easier for PJ Our Way members to find books that suit their interests.”

Celestina, 11, California

“I love spending time with animals. I hope to meet new kids, make new friends, and inspire other people to read the books that we recommend!”

Elana, 11, Virginia

“I love sketching and drawing, and, in my spare time, I love to write and read stories. I also enjoy hanging out with friends and making creative films. On the Design Team, I hope to engage other kids like me to love reading and to inspire them to always have a book in hand. I’m so excited to be working with all of you!”

Ilana, 9, Tennessee

"I love Science, Chanukah, reading, and basketball. On the Design Team I hope to make new friends and help other kids find books they love to read!”

Jeremy, 8.5, Louisiana

“I like sketching, acting, reading, and running. I look forward to making videos, posting blogs, and creating quizzes!"

Ori, 10, Ohio

“I love owls, pizza, and being loud (unfortunately for anyone in a 60 mile radius). I hope to make fun reviews and sometimes video trailers on the Design Team, since that looks fun.”

Rose, 8.5, New York

“I love to dance, make videos, and play piano. What I hope to do on the Design Team is meet new friends and make videos.”

Ruben, 10, California

“I love spending time with my family and my cat Ringo, playing the piano, editing movies, drawing, playing Minecraft, performing magic tricks, doing math, and writing stories. On the Design Team I hope to write scripts and make short films for the book reviews, talk about books, and meet other Jewish kids from all over the country.”

Ryan, 11, Connecticut

“I love woodworking and building forts, the TV show West Coast Customs, music from the play Hamilton, playing outside with my friends and being with my family. What I hope to do on the Design Team is make awesome video reviews so other kids can see how great PJ Our Way books are.”

Zoe, 11, California

“I love Reading, gymnastics, Hamilton, animals and coding! I am excited to read and review some great books, get creative with the website and reviews, and meet a team of people that love what I love to do!"

Anna, 13, Teen Leader, California

“Hi! I'm Anna, from California, and I am SO excited to be your PJ Our Way Design Team teen leader this year! I'm thirteen, and I was on the Design Team a year ago when I was eleven. It was so much fun! I really enjoy musical theatre, and I am a dancer. I am OBSESSED with Hamilton, and a bunch of other musicals. As teen leader, I hope to make PJOW more inclusive for members outside of the design team, and to make sure that everyone has fun and enjoys PJ Our Way as much as possible!

Got a question for anyone on the Design team? Post it here!

How do you get to be on the design team?
