Ms. Efrat Dotan is 26 years old and has Down syndrome and 19 year old Mr. Matanel Bitton has developmental disabilities. The two have aspirations to be journalists and decided that they would not allow anything to hinder their dreams. Picking up a camera and a microphone about two years ago, they managed to secure some big names in Israel and Ynetnews, Israel's largest electronic news source began picking up their interviews online. Over the past year, Dotan and Bitton have interviewed many famous Israelis from the worlds of politics, business and entertainment. Their interviews have included Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President of Israel Shimon Peres, supermodel Bar Rafaeli, and for the first time in Israel's history, the Israel Government Press Office issued press cards for two special needs reporters.

Now, Shalva, an organization that provides services to participants with special needs, including infants, children, adolescents and young adults via tailored programs and round-the-clock therapies, seven days a week is bringing Matanel and Efrat to the United States to help them continue their work and to bring awareness to the fact that anyone can accomplish their dreams.
