Leader | International Politics | Innovating New Structures for a Fair, Cooperative, and Secure World | Founded and Led Initiatives Globally | Interests: Progress and Radical Changes | Harvard. Cornell. Valedictorian. |
I have always been determined to help others and make a significant impact in the world.
As a child, I was inspired by the potential of individuals, groups, and countries to do “great things” when visiting the architectural sites of the Abyssinian empire, Ancient Egypt, and modern societies. I was also struck by the extreme pain and suffering of people which deeply disturbed me. I was fortunate to have a very loving family who guided me and an international-Ethiopian-Zimbabwean-American background that grounded me. I grew up in Zimbabwe in a close-knit community that instilled in us the importance of working together. I would also hear stories of Ethiopian leaders like my great-grandmother who sent troops to fight against the Italians in the Battle of Adwa. I attended an American international school where I saw how it was possible for kids from different national, ethnic, and religious backgrounds to come together. I admired freedom fighters around the world who endured so much such as imprisonment or “poverty” when fighting for causes considered a threat to the powers that be. From their example, I further learned how essential good leadership and sacrifice is. In school, as we learned about politicians, scientists, musicians, among others, I gained a deeper appreciation for great thinkers, changemakers, and beautiful people.
I graduated from Harare International School, Cornell University, and Harvard University, receiving over twenty awards. I became more disturbed by the extreme failings of our current systems.
Over the past decade, I led and founded initiatives globally. One focus was on innovating inside and outside of formal systems and envisioning new political structures to address global problems. A second focus was on executing strategies, creating plans, and analysing possible outcomes to enable action. A third focus that I spent the most time on was engaging (among various other things) with elected politicians and senior government, military, and police officials as well as fighting for urgent action to be taken within government departments/ministries/agencies for certain issues. A fourth focus was on supporting and participating in many national, regional, and international political organizations and parties while building cohesion within teams and advising a few organizations on possible directions to take to grow and further the causes the organizations are committed to. I am glad about my fifth focus which was encouraging comrades (such as grassroots movement organizers, activists, and independent media producers) both professionally and personally and collaborating with individuals who were promoting interesting causes. There were other things I focused on…
My leadership strengths include: Critical thinking. Vision. Intelligence. Innovation. Good Character. Strong-will. Love. Kindness. Passion. Dedication.
My main interests are progress and radical changes in politics, ideology, peace, security, development, economics, the environment, social issues, education, health care, science, technology, justice, human rights, culture, and international, regional, national, and local systems.
