Internship in the Spotlight – FEMJLM
My name is Alice Goyer and I am an intern at Fem JLM, Jerusalem’s first women in Tech & Entrepreneurship community. For the last 3 weeks, I have been assisting my boss in planning a brand new course called FemForward to help advance women from junior to management positions. On Monday night, I got to see my work come to fruition as we hosted our first in-person lecture at the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens.The handouts I had been working on for weeks were finally printed and given out to participants. I got to greet the women, the lecturer and speakers, and took pictures with everyone, including the Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem for Foreign Relations and Tourism.
The lecture itself was inspiring as we heard about how to build a foundation that will help us to achieve our personal and professional goals.
Overall, I loved planning and helping run this event and hope that as the semester goes on I get to participate in more in-person aspects of my job. After all, these days it’s nice to have something to actually dress and show up for.
Magen David Adom
This week a group of Aardvark students finished their EMS training with Magen David Adom, Israel’s Ambulance Service. After passing the written and practical exams, they are now certified MDA volunteers.
Through this experience, the students will gain many skills in the medical field, while being immersed in one of the most unique Israeli experiences. They will be dedicating their time during their gap year to helping people and even saving lives.
