Born to a historically persecuted people, I experienced immigrations, wars, oppression, loss, and lived in four countries. By the time I was 10 I spoke and/or heard people around me speak: Russian, Spanish, Quechua, Yiddish, Arabic, and Hebrew. The many cultures I was exposed to showed me the magnificent differences between them and taught me how profoundly alike we are. These experiences and the lessons learned became my muse and inspiration.
