I was born in Ramat-Gan Israel in 1984. At the age of three my parents moved to Canada and I had a Canadian upbringing. During my teenage years I felt the increasing pain caused by the Al Aqsa Intifidah and in University I became a Jewish activist, culminating in the creation of the Israeli Canadian Student Association, an organization representing Israel to Canadian audiences. I graduated with a BA Honours in Political Science and another BA in Psychology from the University of Calgary in 2007. After completing my undergrad I spent an year in Lancaster, England where I studied law at Lancaster University. During my time off I toured Jewish sites in Europe. After returning to Canada I was selected to attend the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, completing my masters of global affairs in 2012. During my studies I became the treasurer of the Master of Global Affairs Student Association and attended the Model United Nations summit in New York City as a representative of the school. I am a Journalist by profession, working as a correspondent for the Shalom Toronto newspaper from 2011-2012 and later as a sub-editor for the Jerusalem Post in 2013. I am currently working as a correspondent for the Jewish Independent newspaper in Vancouver BC.
