My relationship to Ronen Foundation

My relationship with "Ronen Foundation" began when I was 16 years old. Month later, I have received a scholarship from the "Ronen Foundation" within the special connection between my high-school: "Thelma Yellin" and the "Ronen Foundation". Since then, I'm in continuous contact with Yaffa, inviting her to my recitals and concerts, feeling free to talk with her about anything happening in my life.                

  I am feeling blessed for the fact that Yaffa is always there for me and that the Ronen Foundation is a warm loving home which is always there to support me.
