But when I was turning 12 years old and entered grade 6 a lot changed...
Hi! My name is Hadassah Strauss and my story begins when I was turning 12 and living in Thornhill, Ontario, Canada.
Here is the rest of my family - Parents, 3 older sisters, and my twin brother. They are standing in front of the synagogue we used to attend where we practice Judaism.
Our classes became only girls
I attended Netivot Hatorah Day School at the time where they taught me general as well as Judaic studies. From nursery - grade 5 we were in the same classes as boys and we were in one class the whole day.
and we also had many different classrooms for different classes
