January 2015 – A New Dawn in the Negev welcomes Cody Merrick of San Antonio, Texas as our new fellow this winter.
Cody is a third year student of Global Affairs at the University of Texas-San Antonio. He joins us as a Masa Bedouin Coexistence Fellow.
During his volunteering, Cody will be learning Hebrew and Arabic, volunteering at the Al Salam Elementary School in Rahat, and running the afterschool English program at the Al Najak High School. He will also participate in trips around Israel and the Negev, and work on a project of personal interest.
You can follow Cody on his blog, Texas to the Negev.
Cody, we’re glad you are here. Welcome aboard (or should we say, abroad).
