What are you working on these days?
I am a consultant, working for Deloitte, as the MNC project leader.
My job is, in a nutshell, to understand the needs and the challenges encountered by global companies and help them scout for relevant technologies and startups.
No two days look alike: some days I spend outdoors, hopping from one startup to another, and some days I spend in front of my favorite LED screen.
What was your first position In the Startup-Nation?
Almost 3 years ago, during my last year in college, I was the first Office Manager at Argus Cyber Security. Yes, the first.
What was your first job ever?
I was 15 years old when I got my first job: working as a summer day-camp counselor. Children can be exhausting!
What life event or moment affected your life the most?
I first came across “Prowoman” when I was in my second year of law school.
After joining the program, which connects women about to take their first professional step, with experienced successful, women, who have already “made it”.
Simultaneously I happened to be part of another program named “Taglit Excel”.
Upon encountering their alumni community, I immediately felt that I had to bring the idea back to Prowoman.
It gave me the inspiration to create an alumni community for Prowoman, which I am still a part of today.
Best advice you received or would like to share?
Work-Life Balance is important.
Despite our highly engaging and demanding lives, where everyone wants to succeed, get ahead and give all they got, work-life balance should be a guiding principle.
There are some moments in life that are too precious to miss out on, because of work.
Yes, we must be diligent, hard-working and passionate about our work. At the same time, it is also important to put boundaries.
Personally, I decide, in advance, how many free evenings I’ll have in a week, and try on weekends to clear my head and recharge for the next week.
