participant year: 
My experiences on Israel Government Fellows was diverse and incredible. Not only did I have great internships at the Israel Ministry of Tourism and the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), but through my internships, I also had the opportunity to meet accomplished Israeli government officials, such as Shimon Peres, Nir Barkat, and Moshe Yaalon.
Israel Government Fellows provided me with unique insights into the workings of the Israeli government, while living in Israel allowed me to gain perspectives, which can only be acquired from first-hand, immersive experiences. As a result of this effective combination, I now have a better understanding of the type of job I would like to be doing and how I need to focus my passions.
