Amit was born and raised in Herzliya, one of the most beautiful beach cities in Israel, just north of Tel Aviv. She served 3.5 years in the IDF as an Air Force Intelligence Officer and is currently a Captain in the reserved forces. Amit received her bachelor's degree in Political Science and Human Resources from Tel Aviv University. Her work with the Jewish community started on her Birthright trip, which made her become a student leader in Hillel at her campus. Before her time at UCLA, she led Masa and Onward groups through their Israel journey and created internship opportunities in Israel for American students. Since August 2017, she has been serving as the Jewish Agency Israel Fellow to UCLA Hillel, where she manages our Israel programs, from Israel trips and delegations to AIPAC, to pro-Israel activism on campus.
