This summer I interned at Upright Technologies, a startup that manufactures wearable technology devices to help correct your posture. I was primarily in charge of managing the beta testing on their new posture training device which included organizing and analyzing feedback from over 80 Israeli beta testers. In addition, I was tasked with creating a clinical white paper for the company, which summarizes all of the clinical research surrounding the benefits of good posture and the effectiveness of their product. Overall, it was an amazing experience to work with and learn from such intelligent and motivated people, and I felt like the work I was doing had a real impact on the company.

I loved living in Tel Aviv, as I had access to amazing food, great bars, and incredible people. We also got the chance to travel around the entire country doing fun activities such as building a raft on the Jordan River spending the day at an Ethiopian village, exploring the tech startup scene in Nazareth, and much more. This summer was a blast, and I cannot put into words how incredible this experience really was.
