My relationship to Ronen Foundation
I joined the foundation in the summer of 2018, in which I was fortunate to take part in a summer workshop for singers in Tuscany, Italy, thanks to the support I received from the foundation. This was the first time I traveled abroad as a singer and in this workshop, I got to learn from professionals of the highest level and make new connections with colleagues from all around the world. Also, the foundation provides a very special personal attention that is rare to come by in this profession. They always want to catch up on our personal situation and our plans for the future, and accordingly offer ideas or create new connections in preparation for the next step.
