Hadara is a big fan of gap years. After “graduating” from the Tivnu gap year in 2016, Hadara went on to Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina, where they earned a B.A. in Creative Writing. While studying at Warren Wilson, Hadara worked as head of the college’s Jewish Life group, organizing and leading events for Jewish holidays. But Hadara loves gap years so much they weren’t satisfied with just one. So two years in, they took another. And then another. They returned to Warren Wilson older and wiser. This time around, they worked as a peer tutor at the Writing Studio. When they’re not teaching the Tivnoodles how to weave baskets or make espresso, you might find them reading, carving a spoon, eating a pizza, writing a poem, or chasing the neighborhood cat.
