gap year in israel

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

My name is Taya Samuels, I’m from Melbourne Australia and went to Mount Scopus Memorial College.

I chose to go on a gap year because I realised that after such intense studying in year 12, I was not ready to go to uni and start studying again so a gap year offered me the long break I needed. I chose Aardvark Israel because it consists of everything I wanted in a gap year, including independent living, traveling, and Camp America!

I’m currently interning at Minute Media in their product team, working on website migration. Even though I was originally aiming for the marketing position, they offered a place in the product team as they needed more people so I was willing to give it a go as I have never dabbled in anything tech related. I am manually migrating their NFL and NBA Fansided websites from the software developer called WordPress to their new website developer called Voltax, recreating all elements of the websites. I always look forward to going into the office because the work environment is amazing and I love my daily experience there! I especially love the arcade machines, pool tables, bean bags, and coffee machines!

After my gap year, I will work and study Politics International Relations, and Law at Melbourne Uni!

Fun fact: I talk to my roommates in my sleep”.
