Ben Gurion's Grave

This was taken at Ben Gurion’s grave in the Negev. I learned all about the other side of Ben Gurion; how he wasn't just a political leader, but role model for settling the Negev. He believed that the Negev was Israel’s greatest opportunity. He settled in a kibbutz and farmed with the rest of his community. And he chose to be buried in the Negev to draw people to his home.

I connected with the idea of believing in something/preaching something and
following through. Many people would love to study abroad, especially in Israel, yet most don’t put in the time or effort to accomplish this. I worked hard writing essays and collaborating with my school to receive a scholarship. I followed through and can now serve as a role model for others who want to do the same! - Talia
