I graduated from Hawassa University with a BSc in Applied Chemistry in 2005GC. Since then, I have been working in various government institutions across the country, before I was appointed as the Mayor of Hawassa City Administration in 2019.
During my stay at Hawassa University (2002-2005), I had gained a lot both in academic and non-academic realms. Hawassa University laid the foundation for my current status as a mayor of Hawassa City Administration and in my personal life.
I consider myself lucky not because I am the first graduate of Hawassa University, which has produced a large number of graduates serving their country in different professions, but because currently, I have got the opportunity to work closely with Hawassa University as Board Member of the university.
