Shalhavit's assistance brought to life the introduction of the audience to the play’s main theme of individual responsibility in the face of ideological conflicts.
I follow her on several social platforms and news posts and I have always been very impressed by her love and dedication to the human race. She is a hard worker and the positivity and optimism which she brings into the room and the team really make a difference.

Shalhavit is a doer, and her admirable work ethic and immense talents will help my company achieve its mission of increasing economic diversity on college campuses.
The hallmarks of her work are a fresh perspective, deep user experience expertise, persistence, and a “roll up your sleeves” attitude of getting out there and doing the work.
I was thoroughly impressed with Shalhavit, and I think any organization would benefit from getting her valuable perspective.
CEO & Co-Founder, Prepify
Shalhavit is a "positively passionate" advocate of pursuing what I wholeheartedly endorse for my students and for which she is a living example. Find what makes you happy and get someone to pay you to do it! She clearly has the commitment and dedication to her beliefs and the sheer desire to make it happen.

Shalhavit-Simcha Cohen is dynamic and dependable. I have long been impressed with the way she balances her creativity with her professionalism. She is a pleasure to work with.
Seeing you and listening to you was, as always, very insightful. The team was inspired and the discussion continued afterwards, reflecting on the impact of the talk.

Shalhavit brings enormous optimism, energy, creativity and purpose to everything she does. Her idea of making a TV show based on positive psychology research is the perfect case-in-point; a brilliant concept, brought forward by her ability to enthuse people with her upbeat vision. It has been my pleasure to work with her on this ground-breaking concept.
Shalhavit-Simcha is a born leader. The way Shalhavit facilitates a meeting is charismatic and captivating. Working from a foundation of ethics and intellect makes Shalhavit's approach effective and inspiring. Her knowledge of her field is impressive, and the insights she shared with me were unexpected and brilliant.

Ms. Cohen brought a genuine, dynamic, and interactive approach to engaging our audience.
She brought faith and healing to a deeply personal event. Ms. Cohen is a bright light in a world that can feel oppressively dark. I wish her nothing but the best and give her the highest recommendation..

It is my experience that success in media requires a surprisingly rare combination of talent and drive. Shalhavit-Simcha adds to both of these a passion for happiness and positivity that is not just a set of ideals for her, but clearly also an expression of her inner self. We have benefited greatly from our collaborations with Shalhavit-Simcha and are confident that she will succeed in whatever she sets her mind to.
