FrontEnd Developer

I was born in Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia, and I grew up in the vibrant neighborhood of Keraniyo. Throughout my life, I have developed a deep passion for computers and all things digital. This passion started at a young age, as I found myself drawn to the world of technology and the endless possibilities it offered. I would spend hours on my computer, exploring various new tools. As I grew older, my interest in computers expanded, and I began to delve into programming and graphics. I was fascinated by the ability to create and manipulate digital images and the power that coding held to bring ideas to life. Programming and graphics have always fascinated me, and I find great joy in exploring the endless possibilities that technology offers. In my second year of college, I got the chance to join the VLM team, a campus fellowship group dedicated to digital evangelism. Over the course of a year, I had the opportunity to participate in a training session organized by VLM in collaboration with the GCME DS teams. It was during this transformative moment that I felt a deep sense of inspiration to become a digital missionary. After graduating, I made the decision to join DS and currently serve as a project manager within the tech and innovation sub-team. Additionally, I have a couple of hobbies that bring me immense pleasure: listening to music and spending quality time with both myself and my loved ones. Listening to music allows me to unwind and find inspiration while spending quality time with loved ones helps me foster meaningful connections and create lasting memories. And most of all, spending time with myself helps me reflect, recharge, and prioritize self-care. It allows me to indulge in activities that bring me joy and helps me maintain a healthy work-life balance. Taking time for myself also enables personal growth and self-discovery, as I am able to explore my interests, set goals, and nurture my passions. These hobbies provide a balance in my life and contribute to my overall happiness and well-being.
