Hi! My name is Maya and I’m from New York. For the next year, I will be in Israel on a program that will help me become fully immersed in Israeli culture. During the first half of the year, I will be working at a start up in Tel Aviv and seeing the behind the scenes of Israeli businesses. For the second half of the year, I will be in Jerusalem taking classes and going on weekly tours around Israel. Throughout my year I will also be going on trips to Poland, Portugal, Morocco, and Dubai. I’m very excited to see where the year takes me!
