Hanan Shiferaw, Youth Coordinator at UWEAST

Youth Coordinator

I come from an East African, more specifically Ethiopian background, and I incorporate that when I work with youth to build leadership skills, open communication, teamwork, and self-confidence. I love the fact that I am helping the next generation at the Center, providing resources to youth that I myself never had. These are the faces of the future, and we are helping them to become one with themselves, proud of who they are and where they come from! I believe in loving yourself wholeheartedly, because then you are able to love others completely and that’s when we can make change.
