Classical Music Viola player -Nina Loeterman, made aliyah to Israel in 2009 from Boston with hopes of continuing her music career here. Like a lot of Olim (new immigrants to Israeli), the high prices of Tel Aviv (in 2021 credited as being the most expensive city in the world), required adapting to a new career, not just a new culture and language.
This is where we, Israel Tech Challenge, excel. Nina joined the Full-Stack Development program in June 2020 and graduated 6 months later and currently is working at ZOOMIN as a Front end developer. This week on Channel 14, Nina shared her story and how her English and ability to learn are invaluable traits in the high-tech ecosystem, and ITC taught her technical skills and honed the soft skills to launch her career.
