"I became interested in representing Israel in general and in the "Future Generation" program in particular in light of the values I grew up with. My grandfather is a lieutenant colonel in the army who fought on the front in three of Israel's wars, moved to the Negev out of Zionism and was one of the founders of KMG as a young electrical engineer," says Maya Padlon (24). , a graduate of the program and a bachelor's student "My grandparents from the other side immigrated to Israel after suffering from anti-Semitism in North Africa. I was raised on the fact that "we don't have another country", not as a cliché but as a matter of fact, every Israeli citizen should act to defend the homeland.
On a personal level, I lived in the USA during high school and continued as a lone soldier in Israel until the beginning of my military service. Throughout my life's experiences, I realized that there is complete ignorance regarding Israel, in all aspects. This strengthened my willingness to represent the country and take action to promote Israeli foreign policy. The program gave me Unparalleled professional development. In the Israeli context, working in the multilateral arena is intriguing, rewarding and important. Beyond the enormous honor of the job itself, I gained personal development and an invaluable experience for the rest of my life."
