THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT RONIT
She love Pilates, snorkeling, natural reserves all over the world, reading and TV series (mainly Narcos and House of cards).
She grew up in Jaffa as an only child and was very protected.
Her grandfather immigrated from France to Tel -Aviv in 1912 and was the first coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv (football). Photos show that he taught Ata Turk (who was the General in Israel at the time) to play football!
She has a special admiration for the Righteous Among the Nations: “They saved Jews during the holocaust in spite of all the dangers involved. They were extraordinarily brave.”
One of her favorite mantras is Etgar Keret’s “Creating something out of something”: “Creating something out of nothing means making something up, out of thin air, in which case it has no value. Anybody can do that. But when you make something out of something, that means it was already there inside you the whole time, and you discover it as part of creating something new.”
She is a great believer in coaching: “Everybody can work through his personal blockages and shadows if he has the guts to leave his comfort zone.”
