When I was in Machon Maayan I did my internship in Save a Child’s Heart and I loved it. I knew I wanted to be a doctor, but I didn’t know I wanted to be a pediatric cardiologist surgeon until my internship in Machon Maayan. This past winter I even came back to Israel to shadow doctors in Save a Child’s Heart. I learned so much and I loved Machon Maayan, it was an incredible experience.

There is nothing like doing something that you love while making someone else's life easier. The internship experience at Machon Ma’ayan is having the opportunity to pick an internship that makes you say, ‘I get to!’ instead of saying, ‘I have to’.
I constantly looked forward to internships. It was a highlight of my week. I found my love for working with children while being able to develop myself as a musician and a person.

English Theatre was an opportunity to help girls put on a show. It allowed them to become more confident. The girls were originally from disadvantaged Russian homes, and this gave them a chance to shine.
It’s a beautiful job. As a medical clown, you go into a hospital and bring fresh air to the sick or disabled children and their parents.
