Eva was born in Buenos Aires, in Argentina. Her dad is Jewish and her mom Atheist. As a little girl, she and her parents traveled the world and finally settled back in Argentina with the birth of her little brother when she was 4yrs.
In 2001, with Argentina’s economic collapse, Eva and her family moved to Florida, in USA. During her High School years in the U.S she was involved in the school’s Magnet Art Program for analog photography. That is when she discovered her love for documentary photography and fell in love with the darkroom. Then she went on to study at a college called New World School of the Arts in Miami, but left only a year when she realized her heart desired was to be in the Holy Land.
She moved to Israel in 2009, when she was 20yrs. In Israel she finished her BA in New Media and Communications at the Sammy Ofer School of Communications at the Interdisciplinary Center of Herzliya. During her university time, she began to write for a website called NoCamels.com where she developed a more technical style of writing.
She finally realized that the two true passions of her are literature and art; she applies for the 2013 Summer Publishing Program at Columbia University, in US.
