I chose to take a gap year because I was burnt out from high school. Especially after COVID hit, it was hard to be motivated and get excited about being in a rigorous classroom again so soon after graduating. Aardvark Israel was the perfect gap year program because it gives me an opportunity to grow with all of the independence but still have a strong support system throughout the whole journey. Taking a gap year has been the best decision I have ever made for myself.
