Miss Israel, Titi Ayana plans on asking President Obama to free convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard

Titi Ayana is the first Miss Israel beauty queen from the Ethiopian community. She says she never imagined she would win. Now, she’ll get a chance to meet President Barack Obama during his visit to Israel. Obama, she says, is a rolemodel for her. She says Obama worked hard to get where he did, as did she.

She says his election gave her courage, and that there is no differences between races, religions or sex. Titi says the fact that Obama, like her, was raised by his grandparents, also touched her heart.

She plans on telling the President that he is a role-model. She also plans on asking the President to free convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.
