Haredi Student Gets Coveted UN Internship

Naomi Avraham, a 21-year-old female haredi student from Jerusalem, has been accepted into a prestigious UN program with very restricted admissions.

Ynet reported that Avraham will serve for two months this summer as an intern in the budget office of the UN’s Department of Field Support (DFS) for Peacekeeping Missions.

Only 200 people worldwide are reportedly admitted into the internship. Thousands apply.

Avraham graduated from a haredi Beit Yaakov school for girls, and is about to complete her accounting degree at the haredi branch of Machon Lev, which is a division of the Jerusalem College of Technology.

Her grandfather lived in China and traded there, which helped spur her interest in China – and in learning Chinese.

"I think it's at least as important as English," she reportedly said.

Avraham speaks four languages – Chinese, Yiddish, English and Hebrew.

Machon Lev is funding her trip and is paying for all expenses involved in the internship.

I wish her well and hope it will be an eye-opening experience of the real world for her.

Hpefully she will be able to work with the goyim and men and won't require unusually restrictive changes to the work environment.

Great news. Congratulations to her and her family.

Indeed David, just like with the UN Finnish peacekeepers years ago who used to do their R & R in Israel. A lack of knowledge (in your case) is a great open space for false enlightenment.

There's hope for the girls if they can break free a bit - for the boys and men I think the outlook is bleaker.

You are correct SML. Not saying her per se but one of them could even be the next Monica Lewinsky.

bendinai @ 08:18 PM: your comment is vile. Only good can come out of this young woman's experience if she takes the opportunity to learn about the world around her. And Monica Lewinsky could never have been able to gain admission to a strictly merit-based program like this one.

"Only good can come out of this young woman's experience." I am vile, but realistically so. You are a naive fool. Your contention is that the only reason Monica Lewinsky was performing fellatio on President Clinton is because her appointment to the internship was not merit based. In other words, a woman appointed on merit, could never have fallen into the trap that she did. Mimi Alford completed her first year at prestigious Wheaton College, when she started a job at the White House Press Office. In other words, you naive fol, she earned it. Guess what happened next? I have good political connections to NYC and NYS government; got any daughters who want to go that route?

*fool

Good for her! This is a tremendous opportunity that will open a lot of doors for her future career.

Here's another wacko,crazed, Lubo, who gives "Coming of Moshiach" a new meaning. If he's guilty, get him behind bars where some other prisoners can farbreng his ass all day and night!

"....the next Monica Lewinsky..."

Both Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky brought whatever sexual propensities they had with them and their meeting was sort of a perfect storm. It's not as if she gave Clinton a thrill first and was granted a position afterwards, other than on her knees.

Mazal tov and yashar kokaich.
