I’m in a competition to win a fantastic scholarship to work on social entrepreneurship, and I need your vote to win! The contest ends this Monday January 31 and I’m currently in second place with over 1,200 votes! You can vote at http://thinkimpact.org/innovation-institute-scholarship-contest/ by scrolling down to my name (Rebecca Emiru) and clicking on my picture. Each person can vote once. Thank you so much for your support!

I was raised in Addis Ababa and I am a senior political science major at Amherst College. I hope to use the skills I learn from this program to initiate a career in development in East Africa and Ethiopia in particular. So cast your vote and support a young person trying to make a difference!

Thankfully,
Rebecca Emiru
