Interview with VOA Youth program
I had a very productive discussion with VOA Amharic Gabina’s producer HABTAMU SEYOUM earlier this past week. He asked me very timely questions that are very relevant to Ethiopian youth, the future of the country.
The interview focused on the youth’s role to overcome conflicts, unemployment, and ultimately pick themselves from the ashes to greatness through self-initiative, small scale action, and persistence. In the interview, I mentioned about PRO Leadership’s effort in Ethiopia to empower the youth starting from AAU; how I was handling myself when I was young :-); examples of some of the things I used to do that helped me to get where I’m today; how other countries built their people to take themselves from the third world to first class, and more.
Here is the reporting of the interview: https://amharic.voanews.com/a/5252179.html It begins around 10: 16. Check it out and let me know your thoughts. The detail of the interview will soon be available on VOA’s website.
