Mira grew up in Nazareth, Israel in a loving family with three brothers. She was born into a Christian family and believed in Jesus, but struggled to know how to talk with him. Then, in 2013, she attended a Young Life camp. She says, “I was exposed to a new way of following Jesus,” she says, “and they taught me how to make him your friend and to be able to have him by your side and present the whole time.”

After graduating high school in 2015, Mira worked in a pharmacy – helping customers, keeping the shop clean, and eventually managing the whole shift – in order to save up money to go to college. She also became a volunteer leader in her local Young Life area. In order to pay for her classes, Mira was going to have to give up working with teenagers in her Young Life club. Now, with a scholarship from the DGL program, Mira will continue investing in her local community while being able to equip herself for a lifetime of service.

Mira is studying medicine at Technion (the Israel Institute of Technology) in Haifa. She wants to be a doctor and to work in a hospital. “I’ve always dreamed of having an important role in helping the world,” she says, “and I find this career has many sacrifices, but also contributes to others. I love being helpful and a leader at the same time.” Mira plans to be a Young Life leader even after graduation, helping Young Life’s ministry in Israel grow.
