Application central - post #2
This, for me, is the most difficult question to answer: I'm passionate about a large variety of issues and am involved either through my work, my study or my volunteer positions in women empowerment, peace building on economic bases, social innovation, development of under privileged communities, children's rights, civic action among immigrant communities and so much more.
If I had to choose 3 major fields of interests it would have to be: economic growth, social entrepreneurship and women's empowerment.
I've been a passionate feminist with great interest in women empowerment from a very young age and over the years I've been involved and a post – colonialist feminist study group, volunteered for Saleet (an NGO helping women trapped in prostitution) and founded the Women's parliament to further this agenda.
My passion for social innovation comes to light both in my daily job and in my volunteer work at TedX Jerusalem. In both these organizations I get to help social innovators from all over the world – giving them consultation and tools through PresenTense and giving them a platform for exposure through TedX.
Finally, I strongly believe that financial and economic tools can change social – economic status on the level of the individual, the community and the country and have seen such change in action during my work with the ultra-orthodox community.
