  • "Children learn fast…let’s give them the right tools"

    What an amazing non profit, I definitely hope to intern with them this summer in San Francisco. I’m so happy that others are passionate about the same thing as me….giving technology as means of empowering marginalized populations. When people are educated, they are able to solve their own problems.

    Read about the amazing findings of young rural Ethiopians hacking technology without any instruction:

    Town of Runners

    I immigrated from Ethiopia when I was a lil’ chile.

    Used to run like it was breathing. Stopped running when I got plonked the the good Catholic girls school in London.

    15 years on and I am running again. And this documentary is also being made, looking forward to its release.

    The producer is of no relation, Demissie is a surname more popular than I thought.
