Why are you excited to judge a pro-Israel meme competition?
Where I am in my life, two relevant topics happen to be Israel and Memes. This opportunity is a perfect position for me!

Why did you want to be a judge for this competition?
I’m currently interning for Jerry Media, which is a digital marketing agency founded by Elliot Tebele (creator of the meme account @f*ckjerry on Instagram). I’m also the Emerson Fellow at the University of Miami. This is the perfect combination of my skills!

What are you looking to get out of being a judge for the pro-Israel meme competition?
I would love to see dialogue about Israel take place amongst the millennial demographic. Memes serve as an organic reach to this generation and will prove to be a great avenue for conversation about Israel.
