A week in the life of Masa Israel Participant: Yari Rostamian

Posted April 5th, 2016

Yari Rostamian, Masa Business Fellow and Destination Israel Intern

 

Day 1: Prepping for the young professionals white night with this lovely group of people! Toured the ZOA house then talked business over delicious Roladin burekas, pastries and coffee. 

 

Day 2: Had a fluffy visitor come into the AOL Nautilus office on Rothschild. Molly kept me company as I growth hacked for the startup I intern for.

 

Day 3: My friends and I went out for a beautiful Saturday morning stroll where we learned about Malabi, a popular dairy dessert in the middle east. We went to “Hamalabia” and had a cup full of goodness!

 

Day 4: I have quite the sweet tooth and Tel Aviv really accommodates. We took a quick dessert break to enjoy yummy ice cream and the beautiful weather. 

Day 5: Even though I applied to intern in the marketing department, our startup really supports us to explore other aspects of a business. Our software developer gave us a lesson on coding a website! That’s the great thing about working in a startup, you get to wear many hats during a work day.

 

Day 6: Only a few steps away from the building I work in is Independence Hall. This is where Jewish independence was declared in 1948. 

 

Day 7: Today ends where I show you a week in the life of a Masa participant and ends on a big night; The Masa Young Professionals White Night Tel Aviv. The Masa Business Fellows worked hard to make it a night of professional growth.  Cheers to the companies who led sessions, the Masa Israel staff and the fellows! We did it!
