The CAMERA Fellowship supports student leaders in developing and strengthening their pro-Israel activism on campus. With the school year underway, we are introducing our 2016-17 Fellows, who are working hard to promote the facts about Israel on campus.
Meet Emily Firestone.
Emily Firestone is a rising freshman at Boston University. She grew up in Florida and attended the Weinbaum Yeshivah High School in Boca Raton. During high school, Emily was involved with AIPAC, the Schusterman Advocacy Institute High School Summit, and Saban Leadership Seminars.
Following high school, Emily spent a gap year in Israel studying at Midreshet Moriah. While in Israel she participated in Jerusalem U’s Core 18 Fellowship, an Israel advocacy training program specifically designed for select gap-year students. Through Core 18, Emily was given the opportunity to deepen her understanding of the Middle East conflict and developed her leadership and advocacy skills.
CAMERA on Campus is excited to see Emily put her knowledge of Israel to the test as she advocates for Israel this coming year on campus. Emily is looking forward to represent Israel at BU and share all the great things she has learned and experienced in Israel.
