    Say Hello to IFLAC Interns Ariana and Phillip

    Text: Solveig Hansen

    Meet the new IFLAC Assistants: Ariana Caraffa and Phillip Maciaszek. They are American students currently on a study abroad semester at the University of Haifa. During their stay in Israel, they have kindly agreed to work with IFLAC and Prof. Ada Aharoni for three months.

    Ariana is from Phoenix, Arizona. She is working toward a Bachelor’s Degree in Islamic Civilizations and Societies, Political Science, and Faith Peace & Justice Studies at Boston College. “I was immediately drawn to IFLAC because I am a strong advocate of peace and justice across the globe, and because I am a writer myself,” Ariana says. “There are simply too many injustices in the world as a result of misunderstanding, misconceptions, and conflict.” She hopes that her skill set and hard work can have a positive and lasting impact on IFLAC.

    Phillip is studying Psychology with concentrations in French and International studies at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Last summer he studied the French Language at the Université Paul Valéry in Montpellier, France and is spending this semester studying Peace and Conflict Management at the Haifa University. He says he is proud to be one of the new assistants for Dr. Aharoni. “I am very excited to contribute to IFLAC’s vision for peace and harmony to exist among all of us.”

    They have worked hard and accomplished a lot in their short time with IFLAC. Among the first things they did was to set up a long needed Facebook site for IFLAC. They are involved in the organization of the IFLAC Peace Poetry and Short Story Contest 2013 for children, and Phillip recently facilitated a Q&A session at Reddit with Ada Aharoni.

    Ariana and Phillip also want to remind us all about the three new and important IFLAC Petitions:

    Syria – Stop Killing Your Children

    Israeli and Palestinian Leaders – This Time Give Peace a Real Chance

    Ban the BURKA
