gap year in israel

Check out our social media to see what our students have been up to this past week!

My name is Camelia Freites, I’m from Argentina but currently I’m living in Israel. I did Aardvark Israel in 2020 and lived in Florentine, Tel Aviv for 8 months. After finishing high school I knew I wanted to travel. I’m from a small city in Argentina and back then I felt I had so much to learn before going to university. I chose Aardvark because I loved the idea of living in Tel Aviv and interning in different places; although my year was kind of a roller coaster because of Covid, I loved everything about it.

On December 2021 I made Aliyah and drafted in May 2022 to the IDF. Right now I’m working as a Madrichat Sar’el in the army and I enjoy it very very much ❤️. Before Aardvark I couldn’t imagine myself doing something like this. In the program, I met my best friends, Israel became my home but my Hebrew is still in progress 😂
