I am a 20 years old young man from Ethiopia. I originally come from South Sudan but currently residing in Kenya. I am a very optimistic person in life and I believe being a refugee does not limit me to anything – I still have the power to create the best version of myself.
I am an energetic, committed, self-driven, determined, hard-working, and enthusiastic young man who can never disappoint when given an opportunity. Try me for a week and witness that yourself!
I use social networks to advocate and create more awareness about refugees. I would like to change the perceptions of the world about refugees and shape the narratives around the Refugee Crisis. Refugees have many skills and talents and if they are permitted to work, run businesses or participate in other ways, they can contribute economically and culturally to the host communities and the world in general.
I am passionate about the Sustainable Development Goals as a key to transform our world. I championed Global Goal Four – Quality Education. Education enables refugees to secure a more hopeful and better future, not only for themselves but also for their communities.
My area of expertise and experience keeps growing every day. I have a burning desire to further my studies. I would like to proceed to a university and study International Relations/Journalism. I want to be a voice to the voiceless. I will use my voice to call the world attention to the people at a great distance from the real world, people the world know little about, people who are suffering and dying in silence, people who need humanitarian assistance, people who need our love, compassion, generosity, and solidarity. I want to be an active Global Citizen working towards creating a more just, peaceful, tolerant, inclusive, secure, and sustainable.
