The first week of Onward has gone by so fast! After recovering from jet lag, groups of new and old friends rejoice in Tel Aviv, celebrating the start of summer. I can’t help but notice the sense of normalcy on the streets of Tel Aviv. Masks are rare, social distancing has come to a close, office settings have resumed, restaurants and bars are crowded, and smiles are visible by all.

This summer I have the opportunity to be working for JPO Global, a creative marketing, public relations and strategy agency. Working closely with another intern and a small team, I am excited for the upcoming projects and hands-on experience I will gain throughout the program. Within walking distance of my housing and the beach, the office location is in a prime location of Tel Aviv.
