Jonah K. – Remote Program, Summer 2020
I chose to enroll for the remote internship because I still knew I would get good experience in my field…and learning about Israel along the way too. I worked for a company called BandPad, a musical education website to help kids and students learn how to read and play music. I helped to program a couple of interactive musical education games for the website alongside my supervisor. This internship worked out well for me because along with coding, music is one of my passions, so doing an internship that combined both was a really great experience. While I would have felt more connected to Israel, in Israel, I still felt a connection to the country though the enrichment programs we chose to take. There are programs teaching us about one aspect of Israel or Israeli culture, and those programs definitely helped in making me more connected.
