About Myself: I was born in 1993 and lived in Hod Hasharon for my whole life. During high school I majored in Computer Science and Physics, while in my free time I enjoyed swimming and playing chess. I served as an officer in IDF’s intelligence corps, for a total of 5 years. In that time I also volunteered in helping high school students to graduate their math exams. Meanwhile I took some courses in Coursera, mostly about bioinformatics. After I finished my military service I traveled in America: I have been in South America for 4 months; I worked in a Jewish summer camp in USA for two months and then traveled a little bit more in US.
Hobbies and other activities: I am interested a lot in science, technology, history and politics; so I like to read books or learning online about those topics. Besides that, I’m enjoying playing chess, traveling and hiking.

Recommendation to program participants: “Follow your interests by taking extra courses and talk with as many people as possible – you will be surprised how many opportunities are available to you. But do it all in your own pace and filter out the pressure you might feel to take more and more on yourself.”
