Digital Journalist, Political Junkie and Africa Enthusiast
Introduction
I'm a freelance Journalist/Digital Media Student at Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. Prior to Columbia, I studied at the University of Minnesota Duluth where I received a dual degree in International Studies and Political Science, cum laude, in 2008.

Born and raised in Ethiopia's Oromia region, I'm also the co-founder and Editor-In-Chief of Opride.com, a multimedia website that aggregates Oromo, Ethiopian and Horn of African news. I write regular news commentaries and Op-Eds on current issues that affect the Oromo people in Ethiopia. My articles have appeared on Gadaa.com and other Ethiopian websites.

I also have experience working in a non-profit environment and most recently as Upward Bound Academic Advisor at Minneapolis Public Schools. . (contact : oromsisblog@gmail.com).
