My name is Benjamin Eden Busse and I’m from London, England and I went to Hasmonean Boys School.
As the great Greek philosopher Diogones once said “A reasonable life is one lived in accordance with nature and with one’s natural inclinations”. I chose to follow this ideology which led me to go on a gap year in pursuit of finding myself. Israel was the perfect equilibrium of schedule and independence so it was the best choice for me in order to better myself and transition myself into adulthood.
Aardvark’s Selah program combined with the Israeli pre-military trips positively impacted my Judaism and showed me perspectives into different sects of Judaism, allowing me to strengthen my own credences.
This fall, I am going to study Accountancy and Finance at the University of Bristol and I hope to become an Investment Banker one day.
