"I have a business background and I came here to learn about sustainable business strategies, that is where business and profitability meets environment and sustainability. I had a really nice opportunity to interns with one of the leading organizations in Israel by the name of Greeneye. Through that internship, I came to know about the strategy about responsible investment, which is a way to create private capital for climate change initiatives and any initiatives that can make the society more equitable and more resilient. This is a strategy where people can invest for their better future and still can earn returns on their investments. I am so intrigued by this field I want to focus my career in this field and I am hoping that I will be able to do that."
