Dr Lemlem Aregu: The Women’s Rights Advocate

In the vibrant city of Adama, Ethiopia, the remarkable journey of Dr. Lemlem begins. Born in 1970, as the eldest of six siblings Lemlem remembers being enveloped in a world filled with love and tenderness from her parents. She and her siblings [two brothers and three sisters] always had an equal workload around the house. Looking back, she feels fortunate to have been raised in a progressive and gender-neutral household. Her favorite childhood memory was the comforting aroma the weekends brought when her father, a dedicated veterinarian, would cook his family breakfast.
