Tal Israeli (she/her) is a proud half Mizrahi, half Ashkenazi and full Israeli American from the Bay Area with the occasional identity crisis that comes with all of those titles. She is passionate about uplifting Mizrahi/Sephardic voices through her love of writing, as well as advocating for people with food allergies like her. She enjoys obsessing over pop culture, comedy, cute dogs and eating food while watching TV. Oh, and a good nap, too. Tal is a 2021-2022 Alma College Writing Fellow.
