Roots

I’m Eritrean-American, born and raised in the states to immigrant parents. I am from many places, but my heart calls America and Africa my home. Minneapolis and Eritrea to be specific.

Why AiD?

I am proud to support AiD’s initiative because I believe in its mission and its leadership. I believe in the power and collective responsibility that Africans living abroad have to invest in and support Africa’s growth. Philanthropy and giving is a part of our daily lives, as evidenced in the billions of dollars sent back to the continent in annual remittances. There are more ways we should support and invest in African organizations, communities and leaders.
