Just Getting Started - 06/26/2017

It’s finally here! My first week living here in Tel Aviv has been everything I could hope for. From shakshuka night, to eating falafel at the Carmel Market, to relaxing on the stunning beaches of Tel Aviv, to volunteering at a preschool of asylum-seekers’ kids, and especially to starting my very first internship, I went through my days with a giddy smile on my face. Having finished only my first year at UMass Amherst, I was nervous about finding my first internship without any prior experience in my field of finance.
Applying for Onward was hands down the best decision I could have made for my first summer of building my resume. With the minimal experience that I have, I was given the opportunity to work as a Consulting Associate at a consulting firm for startups. I am not taking a second of this experience for granted because I have already learned so much in my first few days. I can only imagine how much I will learn this summer from my internship and from Onward in general, and I can’t wait to make memories and see what’s to come in the next month and a half!
