If you answered “E” you would only be partially right.Because while Jacky is all of the above, she is also much more. Born in Santiago, Chile and raised in Israel, where she served as a sergeant in the Israeli army, Jacky emerged from humble beginnings but rose through the ranks to become the strong, talented and determined woman she is today.
