Besides teaching me some of the ins and outs of working at an NGO, WIZO afforded me the opportunity to visit the USA and Argentina sponsored Youth Village Nir Haemek in Afula, and to meet talented young students that are on the road to defeating unfortunate odds. For me, this was an invaluable reminder as to why I have chosen the field I am in.
In a few short weeks I will be packing up again and heading home to New York City to begin a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. I look forward to becoming a member of the WIZO community there and continuing my support through the Federations in America.
I would like to thank World WIZO for their welcoming arms and teaching me things about life that you most certainly cannot learn in school.
