Frehiwot joined eef in 2009. Her parents and sisters live in the Ethiopian countryside far away from Addis and far away from any schools. Frehiwot was lucky enough that her grandmother took her under her wings when she was 10 years old. She brought her to Addis Ababa which is where we met Frehiwot when she was in grade 7.
She stood out instantly as a bright girl with a huge smile. She graduated from high school in 2013 and decided to study medicine.
She has recently graduated, making her the 19th EEF doctor working across hospitals in Ethiopia. We are so incredibly proud of her. She is not only going to be a phenomenal doctor but also a wonderful role model for girls across Ethiopia.
Frehiwot is a true future leader.
