Meet the FreshFest Team

  • Erica


    FreshFest Co-Chair

    Hey everyone! My name is Erica Fusté, and I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I am a rising Senior majoring in Philosophy, Politics, & Law, and minoring in Forensics & Criminality, and Social Work & Juvenile Justice. In my free time, I love to do anything outdoors, such as going on hikes or to the beach. My favorite outdoor spot in Los Angeles is Point Dume, Malibu! Since my Freshman year, Hillel has provided me with a space of comfort and with meaningful opportunities for leadership. I truly believe that there is no other place like Hillel on campus!

  • Zach Gordon

    FreshFest Co-Chair

    Hi! My name is Zach and I am from just outside of Chicago. I'm a sophomore studying Psychology and Economics/Mathematics. I love to spend my time painting and I'm a huge sports fan constantly cheering on the Dolphins and Blackhawks. On Fridays, you can always find me at Shabbat dinners at Hillel, the best place on campus! So lucky to have had Freshfest to introduce me to this place and to all of my close friends here at USC. Fight On!

  • Joey Scheinberg

    FreshFest Co-Chair

    Hi! My name is Joey Scheinberg and I’m from Columbus, Ohio. I am a current sophomore here at USC and am an economics major with a minor in biotechnology. I also have my black belt in Tae Kwon Do and fight for USC’s club team. Hillel has been a massive part of my college experience, so I am extremely thankful to be one of the co-chairs for Freshfest this coming fall!
