Building a positive outlook: Yosef Nemanpour


Shalhevet High School
Going to
: Yeshivat Yesodei HaTorah; Yeshiva University

Yosef Nemanpour knows the difference between being a bystander in life and an “upstander,” Shalhevet High School’s widely used term to describe someone who constantly interacts with his world at large with the intention of making a difference.  

Nemanpour, who thoughtfully organizes his ideas before speaking, said his transformation from a troubled preteen with a track record of bullying and class disturbances to student leader and lover of Judaism began the very first day he stepped through Shalhevet’s doors.
