My name is Farrel Brest and I studied at Macquarie University and at Adschool with UTS. I came to Israel because I had never been there before and wanted to explore my Jewish identity and roots. I decided to join Career Israel, and I interned at the Jerusalem Post where I wrote a social media marketing strategy.
The best thing I will take with me from this internship is the network I have created. I have met so many interesting and passionate people who like to discuss the current issues facing Israel.
My favourite trip was hiking in the Galilee and Golan; there are so many beautiful streams and waterholes to swim in that we discovered on a few of our hikes. I also really enjoyed all of the lectures and seminars that Career Israel provided, as well as hearing from people on both the left and right. Participating on Career Israel has overall been a really enjoyable experience.
