A Philadelphia native, Ariel later went on to graduate Phi Beta Kappa from Brandeis University with a BA in Hebrew language and literature and minors in Hispanic studies and economics. After her studies, she worked in hadracha with lone soldiers and American high school students in Israel, and interned in Tzfat at a non-profit organization. Eventually, she decided to make aliyah and move to Jerusalem. Ariel’s most exciting professional experiences include doing a blogging internship with her favorite Israeli music group, teaching Hebrew to lone soldiers, and traveling around the world for her work at ROI.
