Leaving friends, understanding new schools, and figuring out kickball were all part of Elinor’s shift from Israel to the US. We talk about the struggles of navigating the new-home transition, juggling two cultures, and just generally finding her voice and finding her way.
Both the good and the difficult intangibles she inherited have been important in her journey of becoming the person she is today. Keeping the best part and welcoming change are both part of life.
Just because you have rules and regulation and structures and cultures passed to you does not mean you have to live this way.
Having more than one culture and more than one language has been a gift. And her love of exploring new places and new ideas is all part of expanding her mind and her life.
Join the conversation and hear what Elinor has to share about language, culture, and travel.
