I am an olah chadasha from Johannesburg, South Africa. I am currently a student for Social Work at the The Paul Baerwald School of Social Work and Social Welfare, at the The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
I have been living in Israel for two and a half years. When I first arrived at 18 years old, I did national service - Sheirut Leumi in Kibbutz Kfar Etzion, Gush Etzion.
Afterward, I went on to study at the Rothberg International School of Jerusalem in order to be accepted into Hebrew University. I am currently studying Social Work, with the hopes of doing a Masters degree in Journalism.
For the past two years, I have also been living in the dormitories of the University, situated in East Jerusalem, right next to many Arab villages - not necessarily the most peaceful of places to live.
I hope to educate and inform the public of life in Israel from an insiders perspective, as a student. I would additionally like to raise the public's attention to various issues of welfare and human rights violations that we face in the Social Work field , that often go unreported or are misunderstood.
