What are you happiest doing outside of work?
My weekends are filled with trips, social events, and hosting gatherings with family and friends. You can often find me drinking coffee at a beautiful spot in nature. Nothing can compare to sitting by the sea and enjoying the view. I also love running on the beaches of Tel Aviv! It clears my mind and gives me so much adrenaline (I wish I could do it more!).
