My relationship to Ronen Foundation
My relationship with 'Ronen Foundation' began when I was a student at the Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts. I came to the school with the goal of advancing professionally as far as possible, but the economic issue was a significant obstacle. Ronen Foundation supported me since my first year at the school and gave me the opportunity to receive a significant scholarship. In addition, Ronen Foundation continued to support me over the years as I progressed in my professional career. Yaffa Israeli always supported me and attended to a lot of my concerts.
