I’m a third year, first generation student at Duke University studying Global Health and Visual Media Studies. I was born and raised in Ethiopia and have lived in the United States for about 8 years, currently residing in the Washington D.C. area. I’m interested in global health issues pertaining to maternal and child health as well as health issues through the lens of social justice.
I practice multimedia visual art from painting, graphic design, videography and photography. I focus on personal narratives, form and identity through my work.
