I am graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with degrees in journalism and Middle Eastern studies. I'm making Aliyah in June and enlisting into the army shortly after. Upon completing my service, I plan to stay in Israel and pursue a career in journalism. During my time in college, I have been a leader on my campus in defending Israel, building coalitions with student groups on campus, and educating my student body on Israel and what the country has to offer.  My experience advocating for Israel in college has only reaffirmed my commitment to live and be a part of the country.  Since visiting Israel for the first time at the age of 12, I have felt a profound connection to the land and its people and believe that as a Zionist, I should live and be a part of the country I love. I would greatly appreciate your support to make this dream come true.”
