We live our lives wearing a mask to protect ourselves. This mask changes based on the environment we find ourselves in and the people we interact with. This is called the “the mask phenomenon.” Evaluating the mask phenomenon empowers us to identify our own prejudices and how they affect our day to day interactions.

Hiyo Wong is 15 years old. She is messianic, believing that Jesus is the Messiah.

She has a different way of thinking. She currently lives at Porya-Ilit, near the Sea of Galilee, and her differences stem from her status as a minority in Israel.

She is nervous (and excited) to speak in English at TEDxBGU.
