Field of Study

I will be studying Holocaust studies in Haifa, Israel.

How has Dickinson prepared you for your future?

Dickinson has provided me with the knowledge and skills that I will need in pursuing my M.A. The incredible professors at Dickinson have given me so much guidance and support through my graduate school search, and I cannot thank them enough for that. I will always look back at my time at Dickinson and remember the incredible opportunities that were offered to me and how much the school had an impact on pushing me to pursue my dreams of going to the University of Haifa for graduate school.

Internship Experience

Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, Skokie, Illinois: education intern

What are you most anticipating about your future?

I am excited to begin studying in a field that I am passionate about. In the past four years, Holocaust education has become something that I feel needs to be addressed both in the United States and abroad. I am excited to hopefully have an impact on how we teach about the Holocaust both in schools and museums.

What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

Taking Professor [of History Karl] Qualls class on the Holocaust solidified my desire to pursue an M.A. in Holocaust studies. He is one of the most engaging professors that I have had during my time at Dickinson, and I was able to learn so much from his class. Before taking his class, I had already applied to the University of Haifa for their Holocaust studies M.A. program, his class gave me even more confidence that I had chosen the right path for graduate school. I believe that his class has given me a great deal of preparation for graduate school in the fall.
