Jam-Packed Action - 07/03/2017
This post first appeared on Israel Campus Roundtable.
My first two weeks in Israel were absolutely jam-packed. Acclimating to the program was swift and easy. I was lucky enough to find roommates I became fast friends with, and soon after, I began my internship at the Jerusalem Post, which has definitely not been disappointing.
Just in the first two weeks, I got to stand next to a reporter as he interviewed the US Ambassador to Israel, meet Mariah Carey at a press conference in Tel Aviv, and even write my own article and see it get published. I am encouraged by the acute interest the editors at JPost have taken in my fellow interns and myself: they really want us to get involved and pursue the journalistic paths in which we are personally interested.
