I began writing when I was a child. At school, teachers would often ask me to read my essays to the class after being reviewed.

At age 17, I won a regional competition that had been organized to promote young talents.

Hebrew is a Semitic language that is native to Western Asia. It's spoken by over 9 million people, of which 5 million have it as their native language.
