Ioana, from Stockholm, Sweden, attended Nishmat's Alisa Flatow International Program in 2012 – 2013. Before coming to Nishmat, Ioana worked for half a year as a nurse at one of Stockholm's biggest hospitals. She wanted to come to Israel on a program ever since she finished high school, but did not get the opportunity until after finishing nursing school and starting to work. Ioana choose Nishmat because she was interested in growing in her knowledge of Judaism and Torah. Ioana has returned to the same medical unit that she left, doing her best to help people get well again.
