New York Experience as an Ambassador at CRC Headquarters - Ophyr Hanan

“Going back to Israel after these few months in the CRC headquarters is very exciting for me. I wish to connect to current students at EMIS and show them that their missions and perseverance do not stop when they graduate. Please join me and become a CRC ambassador so that together we can do a lot more than just talk about peace, we can actually work towards achieving it and make the world a better place.”
