I decided to take a gap year in lieu of the 4th year of high school because I wanted the chance, to see the world and have new experiences before starting college. I chose to come on Aardvark Israel because of the unique internship opportunities and the international representation among participants. During the first part of the semester, I worked at Sarona Parents, the largest ecosystem for high tech startups in Israel as the operations intern and recently switched gears in order to volunteer with the Israel life-Saving Federation, a nonprofit that works to prevent drowning in Israel. At the Israel Life Saving Federation, I work with kids of all ages, teaching them water safety skills.
In the fall I will be attending Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.

Originally from Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Fun fact: I spent the first semester of my gap year in Ireland
