Emily Shelton | Masa Israel

Emily Shelton
participant year: 
I came to Israel with one goal: to volunteer.  But, I never expected that I would also work alongside 24 amazing peers from the US, meet Israelis who would take me on adventures throughout Israel, and become an A-list celebrity among the students at Shazar Elementary School!
Amidst adjusting to my new life in Israel and getting to know my students who come from broken homes, I find that I’ve become immersed in Israeli society.  My Hebrew has improved, I feel comfortable with Israeli culture, and best of all, I feel myself making a positive difference in the lives of others each day.
