Hi! My name is Noa and I’m from California. During this summer, I worked as a camp counselor and at a cafe as well as traveled with family and friends to Europe. As summer is coming to an end, I will start my gap year by spending six months in Israel on a leadership program in the Upper Galilee–traveling, volunteering, learning, leading, and being immersed within Israeli culture. In March, I will be in South America, learning about Peru’s education system and volunteering at a school for a month. I will then travel for around six weeks in South America, Australia, and New Zealand. To close off my gap year, I am hoping to find an internship for two months. I am so excited for this next year and can’t wait to see how it unfolds and share it with you!!
