“You get challenged every day, surprisingly by your classmates more than anyone else! ”

Why did you choose this path at this point in time?

After over seven years of military service, going to business school was a step toward my ultimate transition to the private sector as well as an opportunity to live in a foreign country and meet incredible people from all over the world.

Coming to HBS is like…

Embarking on a self-search journey. You get challenged every day, surprisingly by your classmates more than anyone else! Even when you think you have a strong opinion backed with rock-solid arguments, by the end of the class you might side with those you used to perceive as your absolute opponents.

Being part of the HBS community is like…

Being a global citizen. I have never before sat in a room with people from so many different countries, nor have I even had the opportunity to do so. Professionally, I feel that this global community backs me wherever I end up going.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A scientist. From a very young age I was not a “usual” girl: I hated dolls and anything pink, I had short hair, loved sports, and found comfort in numbers and solving problems. Thanks to my parents’ encouragement, I learned computer science during high school, which ultimately led me to where I am today.

What is your favorite childhood memory?

My first summer at MEET (Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow) when I was 15. Marina, who lived in Ramallah, and I struggled together in front of a computer screen to write our very first lines of code – and became close friends.

What’s the best thing about your home town?

Jerusalem is an amazingly beautiful city – not only for its fascinating history and its religious importance, but because of how incredibly diverse it is. Just hop on the bus and you will see sitting next to each other an ultra-orthodox Jew, a group of Palestinian high schoolers, and a software engineer working on her startup’s new feature.
