Shayna Schulman: Summer in Tel Aviv, Israel

Hiking in the Israeli desert

Year: Rising Sophomore
Major/Minor: Political Science/(possibly) Hebrew
Program: Tel Aviv University

Have you traveled abroad before? If so, where and why?
I have previously traveled to Israel, the Czech Republic, and Poland. I went on youth group trips to visit historic Jewish sites in those countries.

Have you studied abroad before? If so, where, when, and for what?
I have never studied abroad. This summer will be my first time!!

Where are you studying abroad this time and why did you choose this location & program?
This summer I am studying abroad at Tel Aviv University in Israel. I chose this program because it allows me to take interesting political science courses that align with my studies at UF. I want to study abroad in Israel because I feel comfortable there and want to spend more time in the country.

What are you most looking forward to during your study abroad program? What are you most nervous about?
I am most looking forward to exploring Tel Aviv and meeting new friends. I am most nervous about sitting on an airplane for 12 hours because I have never been on a plane for that long.

What are some of your interests and hobbies?
I am currently on the UF mock trial team and I have practiced taekwondo for almost 10 years. 

Anything else you would like us to know about you?
I’m very excited for this summer!!
