Alumni Stories

Andra Wiessberger, Alumni of the International MA in Crisis and Trauma. She is currently the IsraAID Country Director for Sierra Leone. I received my BA in Sociology from California, then I moved to Israel in 2010. I was in the army for 2 years in a division that did humanitarian aid.

Before beginning the International MA in Crisis and Trauma at Tel Aviv, I was working internationally in Mexico and China where I was focused on education and conflict resolution. In China, I helped to build and implement a western-style theater education program throughout the country. In Mexico, I first ran a summer camp for ex-pat children and local Mexican children to help bridge the cultural divide. The camp used theater activities to discuss environmental and cultural differences, as well as ways forward.
