“Today, I had the opportunity to participate in an actual UN event and get a glimpse into the world of professionals. It has been an incredible experience. I have met and talked with people from UNTSO and the Israeli office for foreign affairs. I had the honor of participating in a UN memorial ceremony with soldiers from all over the world. I learned about different countries and cultures around the world and even tasted exotic food from the Caribbean.”
