University of Haifa International School Student Blog
As much as I try to refrain from sappy statuses, this one was bound to come. My time in Israel has come to an end. This year has expanded my knowledge and understanding of different cultures and religions, but it has also given me time to reconnect with my roots and heritage. I don’t know how I can express my gratitude to all the friends and family who have helped make this year so exceptional. I hope one day I can come close to treating you with the love and hospitality you have shared with me. While its painful to depart from this part of the world, I can leave knowing I have found my second home. To all my Israelis, I’ll see you next year. And we all know I’m getting a one way ticket.
