Ilyssa Schwartz

Ilyssa Schwartz

I'm a junior applied psychology student from Highland Park, New Jersey. I enrolled in this course because Germany has always been on my list of places to go.

Coming from a Jewish background, this trip will give me a experience to see a completely different culture. Even though I am not an education major, I want to work in a school system so I thought it would be a great learning experience to see the difference in our schooling and Germany's.

Along with this, I am a part of PSU 4 Kids that works with and attends Camp Noah over the summer.  Another organization that I am a part of is the current research project on the topic of school shootings and in the future how to prevent them.
