Daniel Gal

Israel

Daniel is a 26-year-old Masters student who is studying politics, international relations and economics at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. Since he was raised by a mother who grew up in the British colony of Gibraltar and an Israeli father who is the son of holocaust survivors, Daniel has a broad international perspective and a passion for human rights. He served in the Israel Defense Forces  Media Spokesperson Unit. Following his military service, he joined Channel 2 News, Israel’s largest news corporation. Through these experiences, he realized that despite living in an interconnected world, humans have the rare ability to go about their day with little awareness of the other. For his Project For Change, he wants to create a new and innovative news sharing internet platform that invites young Palestinian and Israelis to safely swap experiences and stories – thus furthering and aiding change through the development of caring connections.
