One aspect that will benefit me on this trip to Israel, is my open-mindedness. I’m willing to experience new things and cultures. Growing up in New York I experienced many cultures which is what I believe gave me this quality. The reason I believe I can and should be on this trip is, I study hard, I work for my achievements, and I’d love to get better at Hebrew. I can take a lot mentally, as well as physically. I love a good challenge. Although I may complain about the heat, if it means I get to be in Israel, I can put up with it!
