Gabi, 30, began attending MadaTech afternoon workshops when he was eight years old. Coming from a family of meager means, he was able to do so, thanks to a multi-year Museum scholarship. Gabi went on to become a young Museum instructor and later graduated from the Technion. He is, he is now working as an electronics engineer at Intel - the only one in his family to get a university education and a white collar job.
