This February, as most people know, IC was held. It was my second experience there and I had high expectations because IC 2018 in Orlando was outstanding. Luckily, I was not disappointed. This convention hosted thousands of teens from all over the world, including the community of international delegates from outside of North America. This community includes people from the other many countries like the United Kingdom, Blugaria, Mexico, Argentina, Hungary, and more. The sensation of being in such a big convention center is truly breathtaking, from the size of hallways and dining areas to sitting in the theater with Jewish teens from all around the world. Sometimes, it got a little overwhelming being with so many people, as you almost get lost between people you do not know. Being an international means something important because when you meet another international teen you sort of feel at home. This is because we had a previous week together where we got to know each other very well. Global Ambassadors week allowed me to find a home in the International Jewish Community and enriched my International Convention experience!
