Where are you from?
Santa Monica, California
Where are you working this year?
On Mondays I work at JOIN, an organization that works to get homeless Portlanders in permanent homes. The rest of the week I’m on the construction site.
Favorite way to refer to Tivnu participants:
Favorite thing about living in Portland:
The food here is great. Taste Tickler is just down the street from the house which makes it as convenient as it is tasty.
Favorite Tivnu activity so far:
Visiting Mike Suri was so cool. He’s a local metalworker. I forge in my backyard at home so being able to do that in Portland was great.
Tivnu in the NY Times
Taking a gap year at home can be as meaningful as doing one abroad.
