While completing her Masters degree in theories of nationalism at UCLA, Sharona created the Doreinu program, aimed at facilitating deeper conversations for young professionals surrounding topics of Jewish identity and national consciousness. As an undergraduate student of economics and legal studies at UC Berkeley, she was a founder and president of Tikvah Students for Israel.
