Why did you decide to work at Geneva Global?

I was motivated by Geneva Global’s distinguished and passionate team and wanted to contribute to their mission and make a difference in the lives of less privileged children and parents. I wanted to be a part of what seemed to be a winning team and make my own contributions to their work. What really sealed the deal was when Josh Muskin told me, “Geneva Global is small but mighty and you will never regret if you choose to join us.”

What’s your favorite part of your job?

I find analyzing data, interpreting results, and attributing improvements in enrollment, retention, and completion to our interventions to be the most satisfying part of my job.

What brings you joy?

Achievement of goals and objectives of the program. It gives me joy to see that learners who could not attend school previously are able to complete at least primary seven. This opens for them a better future as compared to when they were not able to attend school.

What places do you hope to visit?

I am eager to visit both Ethiopia and the USA, as GG Ethiopia is also implementing Speed School and Pennsylvania is the Head Quarters of Geneva Global. Through these cross-visits, I hope to learn new and improved approaches to my work, benchmark Speed School in GGU and GGE, and enhance my skills and knowledge.
