All About Michelle Grossman

You better watch out for her because she’s a full time journalism student and that’s a tough job!

I had candid chat with her whirlwind life.

“I’m a 20-year-old Journalism Senior, focusing mostly on broadcast journalism. I am originally from Toronto, Canada where I lived until I was 10. I know that Canada and the U.S. are mostly similiar culturally, but I still miss it. If I don’t move to Israel, I will probably move back to Toronto. Currently, I reside in Berkley, near Detroit. It can be a nice place, if you know where to go. I’m a big fan of LOOKING at abandoned buildings, so Detroit is quite nice. I don’t like to explore anymore after a bad experience in a Texan sugar factory where I thought I was going to be shot.

For the past seven months I lived in Tel Aviv, Israel. I took classes at Tel Aviv University on politics, art, and history, and in the summer I travelled around the country and did a small internship at an online radio station in Jerusalem. I liked the open lifestyle there. You can hang out in parks late at night, go to the beach and have a drink.  While I was there, I learned conversational Hebrew. I miss the fun of learning a new language and watching myself become better and better each day with the language. It was so gratifying when someone would ask me for directions–did I actually seem like a real Sabra (Israeli)?

I’m still trying to decide what exactly I will do after I graduate. I would like to one day live in Israel, though I’m trying to sort through the possibilities.  Maybe I’ll do grad school there.

I am grateful, however, to be back in Michigan with my family, friends, and MSU.
