Gabi Zachs

Age: 34

Residence: Tel-Aviv

Occupation: Sport Psychologist

Family & Childhood: I was born in Argentina and my family and I came to Israel when I was 10 years old and we lived in Rehovot. Later I moved to Tel-Aviv.

Sport: All my life I was a volley-ball player and today I practice some amateur sports. I studied social science at Ben-Gurion University in the Negev and then found a degree in “Psychology of Excellence in Sport and Work” in Germany and travelled to study there. These days I work as an educational psychologist and sport psychologist and teach these fields as well.

Politics & the “other side”: I never had the chance to meet Palestinians but this always interested me. I am part of the Peace Team for political reasons – I believe in the idea behind it and am happy to have been given the opportunity to be a part of it. Towards the first meeting with the Palestinians I felt mostly curiosity!
