I chose to go on a gap year with Aardvark Israel because of the balance that is provided – on one hand, I wanted an educational, fulfilling gap year where I could work hard and improve upon myself, and on the other hand, I wanted to have fun and tour what Israel has to offer. The opportunity to work on an American Summer camp also enticed me as it has been something I’ve wanted to do for some time. Aardvark provided the perfect balance for this – I’m having a great time while learning and taking full advantage of this opportunity.

I intern at The Sulha which hopes to gain peace between Israel and Palestine, as well as Grateful Giraffes, an NFT project whose mission is to make the world a more grateful place.
