I always dreamt of returning to the Holy Land and finally took that scary leap as soon as I graduated from high school. Life was very difficult for me in the beginning here, so I went back to Bolivia after a few months. When I turned 19, I was accepted into the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya and so I decided to give myself another chance to live in Israel. Since then, life here has been great!! Family history (100 words max): My father was born in Poland and is the son of Holocaust survivors. They all moved to Israel when he turned 10. My mother was born in La Paz, Bolivia where she also grew up. From her side of the family, her father is also Polish and escaped Poland little before the Holocaust. Her mother comes from a Sefaradi family that was originally from Jerusalem but was forced out in the 1920s and found refuge in Paraguay My connection with Israel: I'm Jewish! What better connection can there be? Defining moment: Being accepted into IDC with a full scholarship! That's when I knew I would be able to start my life in Israel successfully Daily routine: Waking up, getting ready, going to college, sitting through classes, returning home, eating, resting, studying, and in the best days - going on dates and spending time with loved ones On Friday night...
