I am first generation Venezuelan, of eastern European descent. My home was always very Zionist and community oriented. Since my early teens, I have participated in diverse activities within our JCC, such as Israeli folk dancing, leadership training, and youth leadership. I was a madricha (counselor) and leader for different groups at the JCC. I entered as a professional at the Hebraica Caracas JCC as the director of the Israeli Folkdance Department and moved on to became activities director. I am currently the executive director of CSCD Hebraica Caracas, which is the only Jewish Community Center in my city. I am also the executive director for CLAM- Maccabi Latin American Confederation building bonds through activities between Jewish Community Centers in 15 Latin American countries.
