Meet Eden at today’s Team Thursday!
What is your background?
Born and raised in Ethiopia, I am a 23-year-old journalist, impassioned social entrepreneur, human rights activist, global citizen and recent graduate in cybersecurity. My mission in life is to leverage innovation and leadership towards creating sustainable solutions. My professional experience spans across social innovation, sustainable development, education, marketing and journalism.
What is your involvement with PROJECT-E?
I have been familiar with PROJECT-E’s work for the past six years. As of February 2020, I am very fortunate to have joined Team Europe as a web-based volunteer, working mainly on PR, communications and website development.
What are you passionate about?
As a proud non-conformist, I explore unvconventional and innovative ways of tackling problems which aim to solve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. I am passionate about empowering youth to cultivate their skills and unlock their inner potential. As a young leader, I am motivated to harness my skills and apply my knowledge to create large-scale, meaningful impact with measurable progress. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, camping, learning Spanish, debating politics, playing chess, basketball and creating short documentaries.
