What was your dream job as a kid and why? Being a kid, I’ve always dreamt to be a teacher. Growing up back in the days when Jews from all around the world immigrated to Israel I’ve realized the important role of the teacher. Therefore, I studied pedagogy in the university but eventually pursued a career in tourism.
Who inspired or inspires you and why? My grandmother was a person of actions. While working and teaching she also volunteered to educate immigrants in the worst conditions possible devoted to the cause of building the Israeli state.
What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment? My 3 boys who I have raised to love the land and its inhabitants.
What are two key strategies that can help women achieve a more prominent role in their organizations? Always trust your gut instinct. Always believe in yourself.
