María Laura

My name is María Laura, I am from Venezuela and have been living in Spain for the past eleven years. I visited Israel in the summer of 2014. What can I say? I had never been before and I came back home with my bag full of stories and memories of smiles of amazing people. Despite the difficult situation this summer, I enjoyed traveling throughout Israel, visiting special places of historical significance, learning about local culture and studying at Tel Aviv University's summer English program. Tel Aviv is a beautiful place full of young people everywhere. It is simply charming with modern architecture, tasty food and has a very optimistic mood.

One of the highlights of the trip was the volunteering at the World WIZO Fundraising Division. I did not know WIZO before but I felt committed to their activities immediately. Whenever I visit a country for a period of time, I like to cooperate and help. It gives you an opportunity to have another approach to the local situation and with the lovely team at WIZO especially Esther and Annette you feel that you are at home and that your help really counts. Thank you for the chance that you gave me and I look forward to seeing you soon.
