I wanted to do a gap semester to discover myself and explore new cultures and environments before settling down into a routine. I chose Aardvark Israel because this program offered the perfect balance between structure and free time. I’m able to do all the touristy things while still spending time with my family in Israel.

I intern for Israel21c, an English-speaking Israeli newspaper, where I write articles about my time in Israel and interesting topics worth exploring.

Fun Fact: I like ketchup on her pizza!
