My name is Daniel Judcowicz, I’m originally from Vancouver and today I live in Florentine, the same neighborhood I was living in on gap year. I did Aardvark Israel from January 2020- August 2020.
In Vancouver, not many people travel or take a gap year before college. I did 6 months of traveling in Brazil before I decided I wanted to spend time in Israel to see what it was like to live here. I chose Aardvark originally because It gave me a lot of freedom to see and get to know the city. Aardvark helped me realize that there are so many things you can do with your life. Just because you were born somewhere, doesn’t mean that’s where you have to stay.
These days, I’m a year and 3 months into my army service, where I am a Combat soldier in the search and rescue brigade. When I’m not in the army, I’m trying to find ways to travel abroad or at the beach.
