I am running a storytelling program in schools through which students create short documentaries about their communities to create a digital mosaic of teenage life in Israel. The content is made accessible to other teens, and the goal is to create more curiosity, empathy, and understanding between communities—I want to give them an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the lives of other teenagers in Israel.
Through the Fellowship, I am hoping to gain team-building and project-sustainability skills as well as find ways of developing personal-sustainability tools and resources.

will be capable of more complex and compassionate thinking.”
