Amit Meir grew up in the desert, and his head was full of agricultural dreams. Following his pre-army service year in HaShomer HaChadash, and military service as a fighter and commander in the 669 elite unit, he dreamt of coming back home, to moshav Hazeva in the Arava, throwing himself into the family agricultural business, and working the land, just like his parents. But Meir found himself in a completely different adventure – now aged 29, he is the head-master of a school he himself established.
