Mekedes is a young Ethiopian with a background in law and community development. She is a #DOTYouth alumni who has trained hundreds of young men and women in her community in entrepreneurship and digital skills.
Mekedes shares, “As a DOT Youth and young person myself, I have first-hand experience with the issues young people face in my country.
