Meet the NJBoT!
My name is Bradford and I’m from the BV Chapter. I grew up in Ohio in the former Northwest Ohio chapter of CISV where I was very involved in JB. Nowadays, I work and live in Delaware with with Habitat for Humanity. In my free time, I like to watch scary movies, read, and cuddle with my two cats: Bruce and Banner. Random facts about me: I studied in Chile while in college, my go-to Starbucks order is anything cold brew, I love a good Cuban sandwich, and socks are my passion (too strong a word? Oh well, I’m rolling with it).
My name is Carolyn and I am from Columbus! I have been doing CISV since I was 10 and I love it so much! When I’m not doing NJBoT or LJR stuff, I love hangout out with dogs, binging Netflix, and recklessly online shopping. My favorite sandwich has for sure got to be a classic PB&J!! They’re amazing and perfect and you just can’t go wrong with a classic!
Hello! My name is Baily Faller, and I live in Delaware. I’m part of the Brandywine Valley chapter, and I am a sophomore in high school at the Tower Hill School. Some of my favorite things are photography, field hockey, diving, and grilled peppers. I have been involved in CISV since I was ten, and I am very happy I was introduced to it. I am extremely grateful for CISV and how it has shaped me as a person, and I look forward to working with the JB to create a better future for CISV! I have learned so much about diversity, open-mindedness, and leadership, and I hope to get more people involved in CISV.
Hiya! I’m Silas. I’m a fan of cheese, music (not KidzBop), and CISV! I think my favorite type of sandwich is probably a grilled cheese. Comfort food, y’know? I like clouds a lot, but I like the sky most at night because stars. I’m super excited for the upcoming year!
Hi my name is Ross Rubin and I am an 11th grader in Dallas. I have been doing CISV for 6 years now and I absolutely love it.

Hey guys! My name is Liddy Grossman! I am 16 years old and I am from CISV Brandywine Valley. I absolutely love coffee, cats, traveling, photography and doing almost anything that involves the outdoors. My favorite kind of tree is a wisteria and my favorite kind of flower is a poppy.
My name is Grace Bitner and I’m 18 years old. Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day, but I can never pick between pancakes and French toast. I love listening to music, and I sing along as loud as I can despite my incredible lack of skill in that department. I am 110% a dog person, and have two dogs of my own. I’ve been in CISV for 8 years, and I’m currently the LJR for Brandywine Valley.
Hi! I’m Peyton and I’m in the CISV Pittsburgh chapter where I am currently LJR and am so excited to serve on the NJBoT. In my free time you can find me cuddling with my dog Blue, working on Global Minds, or playing field hockey for my high school I am passionate about education justice and sharing peace education with the world.
Hell, Hallo, Hullo! My name is Leila Karoline Owens and I’m from the Detroit chapter. I’m a senior in high school and this is my second year on the NJBoT. My favorite fruit juice is 10% grapefruit. When I was a kid, I broke my arm doing gymnastics-y stuff and have been petrified to try again. However, I recently learned to do a back-bend as a part of the Indian dancing group I’m a part of and am very excited about it. Also, I have a pet turtle named Artie and love playing tennis.
