I’m originally from Kiryat Ekron, a town in central Israel but have been living in Metula in recent years as I am in my second year of studies for a bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology in the School of Agriculture at Tel-Hai College.
I moved to the north of Israel for a change of scenery after my military service at the Sde Dov airport air-traffic control. I then decided to stay and study here. This is also where I met my husband Hoshen and we now have a little girl, Havaya who is a year and two months old.
For several reasons. First, I wanted to follow my supervisor at school, Rachel Amir, who works at MIGAL and loved the idea of doing research with her. Secondly, I was very interested in the variety of research fields that MIGAL offers and the diverse group of people who work there, which I found refreshing and enriching. Finally, of course, I love northern Israel and MIGAL’s geographical location was attractive to me.
I am proud to announce that the plant science floor at the institute has become a zone free of plastic cups this year! Each of the lab researchers has received a reusable glass with their name on it and we are inspiring all of the other departments to do the same as well.
