I’m Naomi Daniel and I arrived to Bet Elazraki at the age of 9, together with my two younger sisters. From that point on, we were blessed with an amazing home and a large and embracing family. My special home provided me the opportunity to develop my skills – I participated in a choir and became the soloist, took part in an amazing project sponsored by Excellence and studied through Intel. The Children’s Home also opened up a whole new world for me across the globe as I participated in a delegation to Rwanda and flew to New York for a Children’s Home dinner, where I represented my brothers and sisters.
A new chapter in my life started immediately after I successfully graduated from high school – National Service. During my first year, I served at the Democratic School in Hadera, where I taught music and, concurrently, I worked with youth at risk at the community center. Following an extensive evaluation process and a great deal of excitement, I was accepted to National Service Abroad and was off to the Independent School in Handon, London.
When I completed my National Service, which was also intriguing, I knew it was time for my next and important step: academic studies. I studied government, diplomacy and strategy at the IDC, had the privilege of meeting President Rivlin, took part in various delegations, worked at the Holocaust Museum in Washington and was a member of the advocacy mission to London and Manchester. I took part in the Stand With Us global advocacy program and was able to bring famous bloggers from Europe and South Africa to Israel, to experience our country first hand and share their impressions with their followers.
I currently work as a personal banker at Bank Mizrahi.
I met Jeremy while attending IDC – he was a student there too. We were engaged in March and G-d willing, we will be married next June.
