After I made Aliyah, looking at the soldiers in the streets I had a dream – one day I would be an Israeli officer.
It took me a while and yes, it was painful hard work, especially been a lone soldier without family in Israel but I had a dream and I pursued it.
Don’t let yourself doubt that you can fulfill your dreams.
You will have to work hard to achieve this – the bigger the dreams, the harder the work.
It was an honor to serve my country and a bigger honor to dress in the only Israeli – Jewish uniform in the world – The IDF uniform.
