My role model was first my mom, [who] I think really raised me well in the way that she gave me some qualities in life to be strong, honest, open, loving, and helpful to others. Through my life I tried to raise my children the way that she raised me, also to be proud and strong and take care of themselves, to protect themselves as individuals. Then, when I met Ida Nudel, in our struggle to leave the country, she was my role model, with tremendous strength and humanity [in] who she was. She wasn't simply a brave woman fighting for a visa to Israel; she was named as a 'guardian angel of the prisoners of conscience.'
