My name is Yonit, I am 30 years old, married and mother of two gorgeous children.
I was recently discharged from the army after 11 years of service at the rank of Major - I served in the Golan Heights and Lebanon as an armored corps instructor and as liaison officer with Lebanon and the South Lebanon Army (SLA), and afterwards as an officer in the reserve unit stationed on the Lebanese border.
After serving for so long in the army, and watching friends and commanders fall in the line of duty, I felt that it was time to make a change and give back to my country in a different way - to my community.
I've just completed a B.A. degree in Behavioral Sciences, majoring in Psychology at the Emek Yizrael College - this is a new path for me to follow, and I feel that being the Youth Futures program coordinator in Nazareth Ilit will give a different and satisfying meaning to my life. It has certainly already made me a better mom!
