Gonzalo E. – Hillel Latin America, Winter 2019
“I first came to Israel with Bria, then I volunteered at Hillel Córdoba, and there was where I heard about Onward Israel. Many people told me about this program and how they enjoyed it. So, I decided to come! I’m enjoying every day: I’m loving involving interning in startup nation withh Taranis. The high-tech course at Holon Institute of Technology is awesome! Is making me think and discover a lot. I am signing up for every possible extra activity, I just want to get the best out of every second here: Hatzad Hasheni classes with Ben-Tasgal (which I will keep studying), Hebrew classes, company visits… and the Tel Aviv Marathon! I have been practicing running for 3 years, and when Hillel confirmed me that I was coming to Israel again, I looked for the running events that were taking place here and didn’t doubt to signing up for this one. The marathon was amazing, the atmosphere was awesome, lots of people cheering, fantastic views, a lot of music, everybody had a blast!
Now, two weeks away from the end of the program, I know I will come back to Israel, hopefully in a year (after I get my economics degree at Córdoba), and I want to stay for a longer time: working and studying.”
