Citizenship: Israel

I was born and raised in Jerusalem, Israel. Growing up in this microcosmos among diverse cultures and conflicts greatly shaped my viewpoint, and gave me the wide perspective to become a Global Thinker. My academic background is in Psychology and Social Sciences, and I completed my undergraduate degree at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with a semester at SciencesPo, Paris. During my studies at Columbia University I intend to study how contemporary Middle Eastern security issues are rooted in the colonial era in the region, and how they reflect on global security and diplomacy.
