Program Associate

I come from a family of refugees and immigrants. I am a first generation American and college graduate from the Ethiopian community in San Diego with experience in the health field. The thing that inspires me most about UWEAST is the faith in and commitment to East African youth. The organization values the perspectives of young individuals and eagerly places them in leadership positions. Everyone who interacts with UWEAST can’t help but feel like a member of a loving and welcoming family. I am motivated by all of the hardworking women and men in this organization who also strive to bring positive changes to our community.
