Profile Information

My personal story:
I come from the suburbs of Los Angeles but who I am hails from my living experience in the San Francisco/Bay Area where community activism is hard to miss. I now live in Tel Aviv and work as the Online Content Editor of the Palestine Israel Journal as part of my journey to understanding this conflict and what it will take to get somewhere that looks better than where we are now.
Why I want peace:
I want peace because if we don't get it and soon, we're not going to last much longer.
Interests and activities:
yoga, reading, writing, coffee, friends, dialogue events, cultural exchange, activating civil society,providing a platform for Israelis and Palestinians to take part in on-going debate, to raising awareness
Something you didn't know about me:
My middle name is Nicole.
How I found
PIJ Editor-in-Chief Hillel Schenker
What I want to achieve here:
Greater traffic on the Palestine-Israel Journal website,, in order to spread our message and that of our writers, to encourage greater debate, dialogue and participation on the part of civil society with regard to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
