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 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!
