Paz grew up in Israel in a small village near Netanya (30 minutes north of Tel Aviv). At the age of 18 Paz joined the IDF and served as a Behavioral Diagnostician for seven months and then as a Behavioral Diagnosticians Coordinator for more than a year. Paz traveled through South and Central America for six months before the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. She studied Public Policy and Administration at Sapir Academic College in Sderot and graduated just one week before arriving in Columbus! Paz is the Israel Fellow at OSU Hillel, where she teaches Hebrew, the Israel 101 fellowship, and runs Israel education. Paz also coordinates Israel experiences off campus such as Birthright and the Fact Finders Mission. Paz brought her cat from Israel, she loves to cook, and you’ll never catch her missing a yoga class! Reach out to @osuhillelisraelfellow if you want to grab a free coffee with her.
