For the past 5 years, I have been producing shows for women in the performing arts. I am a co-founder of a non-profit organization called Spotlight On Women which aims to give opportunities to women to develop, discover and define themselves onstage and off. I get a lot of satisfaction creating shows and empowering women (and men) by paying them for their work. I am 31 years old, a wife of 9 years, and mother of 2 beautiful daughters, and I am so greatful! I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and love working with children. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, I moved to Israel with my husband 8 years ago.
An idea worth spreading
When we listen to people's experiences first hand both onstage and off, we let them share their voice and give them a place in this world to be individuals. We learn from them. We can empower them to be the people they want to be, and encourage them to share their differences. My dream is to create a world where there does not need to be competition since each and every one of us has a different purpose in this world. No two people are meant to stand in the same shoes. When we respect our differences and create a forum like TED to learn from one another, we are empowering ourselves with the knowledge and drive to create our own voices. It might just be impossible for each of us to care about every single social issue that exists in the world. I can pick the one closest to me, and make change slowly, one person at a time.
