Joelle traveled to Kikkaya in summer 2016 alongside Shiran Brodt. Hosting courses on the Principles of Philosophy as well as hosting Art workshops, Joelle described her experience in Kikaaya as “the most amazing and meaningful experience I have ever had.”

Joelle described the community as “unbelievably welcoming and open. I learned so much from the students and staff, and felt at times as if I was the student, and the students were my teachers.”


After spending 2 weeks in Kikaaya, Joelle returned to Florida where she is currently finishing up her BA in Agricultural Sustainability. Joelle currently manages all of NF’s social media platforms as well as assists in community outreach and fundraising. She “cant wait to go back next summer!”
