Born and raised in Mexico City, Tania was always full of curiosity and committed to achieving her goals. At the age of eight, she spent a year in Jerusalem with her family and learned the power of personal independence along the way. From a young age, Tania was part of Macabi-Hatzair. She grew in the organization until she became the director and later a board member of Macabi Latin America. Being part of a Tnuat-noar gave her the opportunity to develop creativity, leadership, and life long friendships.
Tania studied psychology and became interested in criminal psychology. This directed her to Chile, where she spent half a year deepening her awareness of the necessity to improve human rights inside the prison system. Back in Mexico, she led a project to promote jobs through art therapy in the psychiatric sector of the jail. This program was later replicated in many prisons in Mexico.
After graduation, Tania looked into a volunteering program at a Mexican NGO. What started as a volunteering program ended as a full time directing position. CADENA is a Jewish nonprofit that aims to reduce the impact of natural disasters in vulnerable communities. CADENA has helped over 1 million people, giving hand-in-hand assistance, medical and psychological consultations to people affected by natural disasters.
After her days in CADENA finished, Tania moved to Israel to complete an M.A. In Organizational Behavior and Development. She is currently program Co-Director at 50 50 Startups, an entrepreneurship program that helps create equally owned tech ventures by Palestinian and Israeli entrepreneurs.
