Tell me about yourself.
What I do in life, in general, is being a human rights and animal rights activist. I grew up with the animal liberation movement, I was active in the Free Jerusalem rights group and I coordinated a project on behalf of the Coalition of Women for Peace. But after years of activism, I felt really worn out, both from the reality in Israeli and also personally: I felt like I was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. The lockdowns during the coronavirus crisis were an opportunity to think about what I wanted to do. I was finishing my master’s degree in criminology. I decided to change course and go to Mexico for a few months to write my thesis, but after a month and a half I realized that I was here to stay.
