Hannah interned for Shahar Avnet, a local couture and bridal designer. Hannah was Shahar’s first ever intern and she took so much away from her experience. She helped out with all things merchandise, website/social media and styling the models. Hannah was able to also work with the studio manager, Karin, and Shahar’s five seamstresses. She loved every aspect of her job but especially appreciated being a part of Shahar’ big photoshoot for her latest collection. “Just watching [Shahar] design was so amazing and inspiring. She made me love fashion all over again and I can’t thank her enough.”
HANNAH Z. – ONWARD ISRAEL CINCINATTI, SUMMER 2019
“I interned at the Yellow Submarine Music Studio and Concert Hall as an Assistant Sound Engineer; my responsibilities included stage and rehearsal room setup, equipment management, & assisting the four main sound engineers with mixing live performances and recording artists or bands during practice sessions. My first day was exciting; everyone at the studio was friendly and happy to teach so I could learn and broaden my skillset. It was a job for a self-motivated individual as work was dependent on how many concerts or recordings sessions were going on in a given day. I’ve always been a proactive individual, so I was excited to learn any and everything I could in my two months in Israel!”

“I had the privilege of working at the Jerusalem Post as a reporter intern through Onward Israel this summer, where I was able to pitch and report on stories ranging from science to arts to politics and everything in between. The highlight of my summer was when I got the scoop on an exclusive story that ended up on page one in the print edition and was also featured on the JPost homepage all day! The story was about the upcoming World Chess tournament, to be hosted in Tunisia—a country that denies entry to Israelis, which would, therefore, disqualify a seven-year-old Israeli chess champion from competing. It was such an exciting moment for me and I am so grateful that I was respected as a real reporter and given so many amazing opportunities through this internship.”
