Student Spotlight: Talia Myers

Meet Talia Myers, a sophomore and president of SSI at Santa Monica College! She is currently studying sociology and she has further plans post-graduation.

Some students find SSI early in college and some later in college. For Talia, she had the opportunity right away in her freshman year. She explains,

Each student in SSI has their “why” behind joining and then becoming a strong leader in the movement. Talia shares her experience of how Zionism is incorporated into her activism.

Even through the struggle of the pandemic, Talia is a strong leader on campus, and she explains her upcoming SSI goals.

As Talia educates students on campus about Israel, it is important she shares her personal connection to Israel and how that is a big part of her identity as a Jew.

Talia is a proud Jew and is well aware of the antisemitism the Jewish community faces on and off-campus. She shares an antisemitic incident and how it personally affected her.

Her calm strength as she faces antisemitism enables her to be an impactful SSI president for students across campus. To keep up with SSI at SMC, follow @ssi_smc on Instagram!
