My name is Metasebiya Kidane. I am 23 and 5,3 tall ,I'm from the beautiful country Ethiopia. I grow up in Addis Abeba Ethiopia. I went to Meskaye Hizunan Medhane Alem Monastory School. Me and mysister was raised by a single mom. It was really hard for my mom to raise two kids by herself. My mom has been through a lot so her children could have a better life. I'm proud I was raised by a single mom. The reason I'm proud is she taught me what working hard truly meant and she taught me how to be independent. I came to the United States Of America when I was 17. I got my High school diploma from Hayfield Secondary School. And now , I go to Northern Virginia Community College. I’m studding Dental Hygiene. My mom taught me about generosity. She used to say Give to others so God will give to you. As a human Bing, I like helping people. Every month I give donation for UNICEF and for Animal shelter. Plus, I'm a member of a foundation called Bayshkolfe. The purpose of this foundation is to help kids that didn't get a chance to go to school. And older people who has no one or who has no family . The foundation is helping 200 hundred people and has plan to make it bigger. I'm contesting Miss Ethiopia America pageant 2017, because if I win , I want to bring people together so we can help our sisters, brothers, parents that requires our help.
