Ayala Broide is originally from Boca Raton, Florida. She fell in love with Eretz Yisrael while studying at Shaalvim seminary and made Aliya mid-course! A fun fact about Ayala is that she has run 4 half marathons and plans to re-open Mr. Pretzel in Jerusalem. Her favorite summer activities include anything fun and food-related (think bobbing for apples or watermelon eating contests). She also loves celebrating a birthday, so get pumped if yours is during the summer!
