My training has led to fascinating human encounters with both my groupmates and various figures we met during the training. I have become acquainted with different narratives of the Israeli reality, while also learning to examine my own identity. The sessions and learning experiences have been extremely meaningful to me, and I am certain they will continue to impact me in the future.
