Sapir became involved in policy change at age 14, leading a protest against the Israeli Ministry of Education. Two years later, she became a youth representative in the Israeli Knesset, taking a bus every week up to Jerusalem. She served in the Israeli Air Force, first in the prestigious pilot course and then as an officer in the intelligence department. It was then that she became determined to pursue her interest and passion for policy. After completing her army service, Sapir decided, together with two friends, to establish Israel 2050, a movement that would deal with the high cost of living in Israel. The movement has grown and today works to solve structural socio-economic problems by empowering civil participation. She also worked, again with friends, to initiate a new holiday in Israel, Teacher’s Day.
Sapir holds a B.A. in liberal arts from Shalem College in Jerusalem, where she focused on political philosophy, writing her thesis on the ethics of regulation. In addition to her efforts leading Israel 2050, she is currently the CEO at the National Union of Israeli Students, which has given her a broader prism on legislation and policy and the chance to impact and interact with thousands of students. Two years ago she founded a co-ed volleyball league, and hopes to turn it into a nonprofit that will change the sport around the world. Sapir lives in Jaffa, with her guitar and a strong belief in the change that her generation can make.
