Meirav is 20 years old and is a university student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is currently studying abroad for a year at Tel Aviv University and living in Israel. She is working with the American Jewish League for Israel to not only make her experience abroad meaningful but to share what she has learned with her peers when she returns from her year in Israel. She is pursing a bachelor's degree in Global Studies with a focus in the Middle East, governance, and conflict resolution. Apart from traveling and learning languages, Meirav enjoys dancing, rock climbing, exercise, and watching her favorite television shows. She especially enjoys pursuing these hobbies abroad and getting into new activities that she doesn't have back home in Chicago.
