Joshua DeMoya, a REALITY participant, recently attended a joint REALITY, ROI Community and Schusterman Philanthropic Network (SPN) Shabbat gathering in Brooklyn, New York. The dinner was hosted by SPN Founder and Co-Chair Lynn Schusterman and featured remarks by Rabbi Andy Bachman about the rich history of Congregation Beth Elohim. Joshua shared his story to reflect on his journey to find community and the moment of clarity brought about by this Brooklyn Shabbat.
What inspires you to get out of bed every day?
My desire to do a little bit better at giving my students the education they deserve and reminding myself of the small successes I see them have every day.
