I was born and raised in Ethiopia. When I was 15, I moved to Kenya, and at 18 I moved to the United States to continue my education at the college level.
I firmly believe design is an everlasting innovational tool and empathy is the fuel that drives it. A path to empathy-driven innovation is to, “build, measure, learn,” and design is inherently just that.
I also believe a “good design” is not permanent but rather a continuous process that involves people and should change their behavior for the better.
I aspire to be a designer that works with people and creates value by materializing thoughts and theories through experiences.
