I am passionate about gender equality and fighting for a world where a girl can reach her dreams without limitations. Thus, I have decided to make this my life's work. I found Saniya foundation to tackle the issue of gender equality in my home country Ethiopia. I was born in Ethiopia, but raised in Minnesota. Minnesota is my home away from home. I wanted to offer girls and women in Ethiopia a chance to better themselves in all aspects of their lives, education, leadership, financial independence, skill training and introducing environmental responsibility.
