My name is Marina Triner. I was born in Ukraine, and grew up half the time in Israel and half the time in San Diego. I currently live in one of the most interesting cities in the world: Jerusalem. In Jerusalem, I work with Arabs and Jews to build trust and come to mutual understanding between these two divided peoples. I am also getting my masters in Political Science and Gender Studies at Hebrew University. WYSE has benefited me immensely: it has given me the empowerment and inspiration I need to begin my first steps towards my dream of equality – between men and women, between Israelis and Palestinians, between human beings.
