ImageAtar is interning at the Kids4Peace International office in Durham, NC.  She is gathering stories of Kids4Peace staff, volunteers and participants.  To share your story, email atar.stav@k4p.org. 

My name is Atar Stav and I’m 21 years old. I was born in Kibbutz Gesher in Israel, by the Sea of Galilee. When I was a teenager, my parents, sister, and I moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2010 I started studying at UNC-Chapel Hill where I am currently a senior. At UNC, I study History and International Relations. I study French and Portuguese, as well. At UNC, I embraced my long-time love for music, working as a DJ at the university’s radio station, WXYC.

Through my studies at UNC, as well as familial history and childhood in Israel, I have developed an interest in conflict resolution, especially the Israeli Palestinian conflict. I believe that peace can only be achieved through equal, honest, and respectful conversation between all the parties involved in the conflict, which is why I am excited to intern with Kids4Peace.

I believe that Kids4Peace provides a platform for dialogue and mutual-understanding, which is imperative to promote peace, and am honored to take part in and volunteer with this organization.”
