Arielle K, Summer 2023
“On my Onward experience, I really grew as a young adult while experiencing city life in one of the top metropolises of the world.
Making my morning coffee, hopping on the bus, and taking my 1 1/2 hour commute to work while watching TLV life go by is something I miss everyday. The friendships I was able to make with my coworkers, Madrichim, Israeli soldiers, and other Onward participants was truly a blessing and I am so grateful to have experienced so many fun times in Israel with so many unique people. I had the opportunity to work as a project manager/engineering intern at Simlat, a leading provider of innovative training solutions for Unmanned Aerial Systems. This experience has provided me with invaluable engineering skills.
I am incredibly grateful to have been able to partake in this internship and take this international experience with me for the rest of my career. Onward gave me the best summer of my life, and I can’t recommend it enough to other young Jewish adults! -Arielle K., Summer 2023
