One Community is happy to welcome Amira Kessem to the One Community Design Team!
Amira Kessem – Mechanical Engineering Student: Amira spent her childhood in an alternative school called a “democratic school,” where she experienced first hand what life can be like when people have an abundance of free time and resources. This has made her passionate about changing the world in that direction. She chose to study engineering because she believes it is a way in which she can make a difference, and she volunteers for One Community for the same reason. She is studying Mechanical Engineering at the Technion in Israel and following an energy track focus with a desire to get a job developing renewable energy technologies. Current courses include dynamics, differential equations, materials engineering, solid mechanics, and thermodynamics. As a One Community partner, Amira is helping with the vermiculture eco-toilets designs.
