Alyssa Wolk

Assistant Academic Coordinator
Culture, food, and traditions always inspire me. In high school, when the opportunity arose to travel to Europe, a spark inside me ignited. My study of Anthropology and Earth Science at University of California, Irvine fanned that flame! While at UCI, I studied abroad in two magnificent and very different destinations: Be'er Sheva, Israel, and the Waikato region of Aotearoa New Zealand for a total of 15 months. While completely immersed in these two amazing, fabulously diverse cultures and environments, I met many inspiring people from all around this beautiful world that continue to teach and humble me to this day.

I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to travel to Italy, France, Germany, England, Israel, Jordan, and Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as many wonderful places in the States. However, my list of where I’d like to travel is much longer! As much as I wish to travel to many new destinations, I made my two study abroad destinations my "homes," and would love to go back and spend time reconnecting with my friends, "family," and the beautiful environments there.

Outside of CEA, I enjoy hiking, reading, painting, do it yourself (DIY) crafting, baking, playing with animals (especially cats), watching Netflix, going to museums, and—of course—travelling!

Did you know? I was in marching band and color guard in high school and I enjoy dancing!
