Choosing Tomorrow: Serving Israelis in Need
“We should be active citizens who challenge anything we see as unjust.”
Lianne is a medical student living in Be’er Sheva, in southern Israel. Be’er Sheva is one of Israel’s poorest major cities; one third of its residents live at or below the poverty line.
Lianne is a member of Choosing Tomorrow, a program that incentivizes students to start their careers in Israel’s underserved areas.
During her time with Choosing Tomorrow, Lianne has taught CPR to community members and reading to young children. Once she graduates, she will remain in Be’er Sheva.
“In Choosing Tomorrow, we are encouraged not to be satisfied with the status quo,” says Lianne. “We should be active citizens who challenge anything we see as unjust.”
