Tal Bilia is a student at Sapir College studying social work. She is originally from the small town of Ofakim, where it is common for young people to continue working in their family’s business instead of pursuing higher education.

However, after learning about ISEF, Tal reached out for financial support and found that the program offered much more than just financial assistance. Through ISEF, she met a diverse group of students and gained valuable social and academic skills. Tal now wants to share what she has learned with her community in Ofakim and show them how they can expand their dreams and pursue a wide range of opportunities.

Tal Bilia’s journey through higher education and involvement with ISEF has allowed her to break from tradition and find ways to inspire her community to pursue their own dreams and opportunities.
