Valeria Milano
Raised in a secular but culturally Jewish home, Valeria constructed her Jewish identity early on in life. At 13, she joined the Hashomer Hatzair youth movement, which helped her connect as a Zionist and Jewish community member—and she ran with that enthusiasm right into her professional career. In 2016, she began working for KKL-Italia Onlus (Italy’s branch of KKL-JNF), where she can transmit her passion to young people through educational activities, workshops and community events.
