Meet Our Student

Daliza

Daliza Carela

Fall 2015

Suny Albany New York.

Why Haifa? One the reasons why I came were because of the program offered by my University.

I have began taking Arabic for a semester back home... significant portion of the population is Arabic speaking and I heard about the diversity of the city and wanted to come to Israel. 

What is the International School for me?  A place where I am constantly challenged to learn.
