• Lena S. – Engineering, Research & Technology, Summer 2019

    “I had an amazing time immersing myself in Israeli culture. I took advantage of as much as I could in Be’er Sheva and tried to see as much as possible. My favorite part of the summer was how I grew more and more comfortable in Be’er Sheva as the summer progressed. As I learned my way around the buses, began a daily workout routine, frequented the climbing gym, and became a regular at the delicious sandwich shop around the corner, I grew to think of Be’er Sheva as my home. I love how Onward Israel made it easy for me to get so comfortable in Israel in such a short time, and when I left, I felt like I had learned so much about the city I lived in. From now on, I will always think of Be’er Sheva as a second home. My least favorite part about living in my city was leaving! It was sad to say goodbye to the friends that I had made, both from Onward and from my internship. We still stay in touch and I can’t wait to go back! I would love to give others the chance to make the connections I made and fall in love with the city of Be’er Sheva as much as I did.”
