Ethan, Summer 2023
“Onward was a truly life-changing experience! I spent my days getting real-world work experience, my afternoons on the beach, and my nights exploring the incredible nightlife of Tel Aviv. I loved being immersed in Israeli culture (especially the amazing food). I got to see the country in a way I never had before on my past trips. The experience has made me feel a strong connection to Israel and I cannot wait to go back as soon as possible!
I worked for a biotech startup that finds the best possible treatment for patients with rare genetic diseases. My job was to compile a database of gene-drug interactions then use the database to make an internal web app that the company could use to optimize the treatment discovery process.”
