Looking for an opportunity to further explore arts and culture, Sharna went on to work in Cultural diplomacy for three and a half years as the Assistant to the Cultural Attaché of Israel. This was a fascinating experience in which Sharna gained a wealth of experience in both UK and middle-eastern culture, working closely with international artists from a range of artistic specialisms.
