• Sophie B. – Hillel Tel Aviv, Summer 2018

    “This summer I am interning at the Sapir Lab – a plant genetics lab at Tel Aviv University. As part of my internship, I do a variety of tasks; from pigment extraction to gel electrophoresis. This opportunity has solidified my desire to go to graduate school in the field of Geobotany, which will allow me to utilize the skills I have gained this summer in botany with Geoscience. I am planning on making Aliyah once I finish my degree, and so I chose to come to Israel this summer to get a glimpse into what my future might look like. So far I have loved every second, and have made friends I know I’ll keep for life, and am excited to see what the next few weeks will hold!”
