I chose to go on a gap year to experience life in Israel and explore my interests. Since most of my family lives in Israel, I have been to Israel a lot as a child. It has always been a second home for me. With Aardvark Israel I can live in Tel Aviv like a local, learn about the country on the tiyuls every Tuesday, and call Israel my actual home. I chose Aardvark because it gave me the unique opportunity to volunteer on ambulances across Israel. I have always been interested in sciences and medicine, but I wanted to make sure I enjoy working in that field before I start studying.
I am volunteering at Magen David Adom, Israel’s national emergency services
