My name is Edom Tilahun. I was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I moved to the United States in the hopes of a higher education and a better life 8 years ago. I’ve lived in Atlanta, GA, Portland, OR and am now living in Northern Virginia, in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
I’m a junior studying Global Health and Visual Media Studies. On campus, I’m involved with The Bridge, DESTA and Baldwin Scholars Program. I love painting, photography and film. I’m excited to learn more about Durham, and making information about the city not only more accessible, but more interactive and creative.
