gap year in israel

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

Hi, my name is Arielle and I’m from London, England. I chose to do Aardvark because I always knew I wanted to spend a year in Israel before going to university. I am half Israeli but through living in London I never felt like I was fully in touch with my heritage and my country. I wanted to feel how it was to live in Israel as a local. Aardvark was the perfect fit for me. Not only do I get to make friends with people from all around the world, I also get a taste of independence. I also loved the way in which the program provides a sufficient schedule and routine full of fun trips, activities and interesting classes as well as leaving us with a lot of free time to explore the country ourselves. Although the gap year did not go the way I had planned, I have learnt a lot from my experience. Getting to see the country unite and help each other out in times of crisis just assures me that Israel is the place for me, I am very grateful that aardvark helped me reach that conclusion. Through my time in Israel so far I have made friends for life and memories I will cherish forever and I can’t wait for next semester to make new ones!! Fun fact: I can speak three languages: English, Hebrew and Swedish.
