Aedan wants to bring back the skills she learned on the Hasbara Fellowships program both the theory and through her personal experiences in Israel.

“I am a proud Jew and an unapologetic Zionist. I am ecstatic to be going on the Hasbara trip in August to strengthen my knowledge and ability to be an effective advocate for Israel. I look forward to meeting with prominent activists and dignitaries who exemplify a strong passion for Israel. I will utilize the lessons learned on the trip to further my advocacy and promotion of Israel back at University.”
