What’s your favorite ISRAEL21c article and why?

“Jerusalem is fastest-growing tourism destination in world” because it talks about the beautiful city of Jerusalem. Last summer, I had the chance to live in the city, which allowed me to really get to know the city.

What’s your favorite part about being a digital ambassador?

I get to promote and show off my favorite country in the world. People are now able to see Israel in a light that highlights its beauty and smarts.
