Caleb Micah Bergers, born on January 7 in St. Petersburg, Russia, celebrates a unique birthday coinciding with Russian Christmas. His life took a heartwarming turn on June 6, his Adoption Day, when he joined his forever family. Now a junior at Bridges Academy in Studio City, Los Angeles, Caleb thrives in this nurturing environment for twice-exceptional students. He has a rich history of living across the United States, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Florida, and California.
Caleb’s passions are as diverse as his background. A music enthusiast, he plays in two bands: one at his school under the guidance of Grammy-nominated educator Kyle Wittlin, and another with Join the Band in Sherman Oaks. His performances at notable venues like the Mint LA and the Federal Bar reflect his musical dedication. Robotics also captivates him, alongside a love for Stephen King’s novels and ambitious LEGO projects, like the 10,001-piece Eiffel Tower set.
Family is central to Caleb’s life, especially his bond with his brother, Joshua, a Pepperdine University athlete. Since the age of two, Caleb has honed his drumming skills, now playing an Alesis Strike Pro SE electronic drum set and taking lessons from Jeff Bowders of the Musician’s Institute. His community spirit shines at Legacy City Church in Studio City, where he assists at the coffee stand and supports the worship band as a roadie, uniting his love for coffee and music. Caleb Micah Bergers is a multifaceted individual, blending creativity, intellect, and a deep sense of family and community.
