According to Michal, she and her mother are the best friends and Michal attests that she is "the most important person in the world." After a whole life in Jerusalem, nine months ago she moved with her boyfriend to Tel Aviv. She has seven tattoos. She has two cats named Koza and Chitose.

She volunteered in the past at the Association for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Anatot. She is easily pressed, reddened, and generally embarrassed. She is afraid of elevators and cannot get into the elevator alone. She arrived spontaneously after a friend tagged her on a post and she said to herself: "Why not try?"

The lucky winners were chosen from the Top 4, which also included Amma Eitan (18) who won the title of "The Public's Favorite" and Taline Abu Hanna (23), who was the first transgender candidate in the history of the competition.
