Student, Tel Aviv University School of Medicine
Rachel, an ENP Yanoff Master Ethiopian-Israeli Healthcare Scholar, has completed her first year at the Tel Aviv University School of Medicine. Rachel is the oldest daughter of seven children born to parents who immigrated with Operation Moses in 1984. The family’s first five years were spent in an Absorption Center in Beersheva. Thereafter the family moved to Yavne to an apartment of their own. As a young teenager in the eighth grade, her parents divorced, and Rachel’s grades at school deteriorated. Nevertheless she decided to channel her energies into the community and spent most of her free time in the Scouts youth movement, then volunteering for a year prior to commencing her army service. During Rachel’s subsequent army service, she decided that she wanted to practice Medicine, to actualize her desire to give back to the community and be a leader in the healthcare system in Israel.
