What’re you up to in this photo?
This picture was taken in Rosh HaNikra- which is a city in the north of Israel. I definitely recommend checking out this city because it is filled with such powerful history and such a welcoming community. These aspects are two of the many reasons why I love this country so much. Israel has such a complex history that emphasizes the resilience of the country.

What else are you passionate about?

I love to travel. I think it is so important to learn and immerse yourself in places that are unfamiliar to you. Doing this, I get to challenge myself. This picture was taken in Peru at Machu Picchu. This was one of the six South American countries that I had the chance to visit this past summer. I met many locals, tried many different foods, and had the opportunity to immerse myself in a place that is so different. I loved every moment of it!
