I believe that one of my biggest strengths is not being shy. I can go up to someone and talk to them and be open. This will help me in Israel because everywhere we go there will be new people with different religions and cultures. However, one thing that will possibly be challenging for me in Israel is being away from my family. I believe that I am ready for this trip because I know Hebrew well, have many experiences with other people, and have a love for Israel. During these few months, I will complete my Capstone presentation and learn more about Israel to fully prepare for the trip.
