"Things have an end. Things have meaning. Things are connected."
I live in the Washington D.C. area and am currently working as a financial analyst.
My interests include:
- Ethiopia. I’m a first generation Ethiopian-American. I love everything about the people, the culture and the food. I want to contribute to the economic development of the country and betterment of society.
- Fashion that is socially conscious. I believe it should be simple to find high quality, affordable clothes that look good and are not made by the hands of exploited workers.
- Fighting depression. There are too many people who feel hopelessness when each person’s life has significant meaning.
- Design and ambiance. I thrive in beautiful places. Lighting is everything.
- Living for a higher purpose. “In Him I live and move and have my being.”
