This Week's Speaker
Yemariam Workneh, Our GRSP Student
Yemariam Workneh hails from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and is studying at Oglethorpe University. Her GRSP story is a little different from our students in the past because Yemariam was selected from Oglethorpe's new student population, rather than from students applying directly through GRSP. While our GRSP scholarships in the past have been cultural scholarships, this year's scholarship is both academic and cultural. Yemariam has just completed her first semester at Oglethorpe, where she plans to complete her undergraduate degree in International Studies. And, she has enjoyed the typical GRSP experience - with host family Tim and Amy Le, and as a participant in all the GRSP weekends to date!
Yemariam graduated high school from the Addis Global Academy last year. She sings, plays basketball, and was president of the Community Service Club.
We'll let her tell you the rest of her story this Friday!
