I was a broadcaster on radio Kol Chai. I have presented over many years in many media outlets. If I would apply for a position at the Broadcasting Authority , At Army Radio or at any government office - even for a position to serve tea - they would not accept me. Because I did not take the Bagrut matriculation exams. I am an ignoramus.
