Lewam Fessehaye

Confident, ambitious and pro-active, I am a young social anthropologist.  I work at GIZ as an assistant project manager, previously having worked in gender tasks.  There, I learned organizational and administrative skills, met and exceeded goals and achieved high-quality, focused results.  I have the ability to work independently and successfully in a high-performance team environment.

I have organized workshops and accompanied girls under 18 in a global IT competition, Technovation from ideation, coding, entrepreneurship and marketing to finally come with pride through the Ethiopian pitch.

Working as a social anthropologist, I was the production assistant and translator for a featured documentary film, “The Midwives,” with an international team of Colombian, Ecuadorian, German and Mexican women.  The film focuses on the understanding of women’s lives in rural Ethiopia by catching the perspectives of one traditional and two modern midwives.

I believe in serving and giving to the community, hence my work with Project-e, an international NGO educating young women in hotel operation by taking over different tasks.

I am a fully committed, energetic, enthusiastic learner and a focused performer with an upbeat, positive attitude willing to pick up and develop new, important skills.

I received my BA in Anthropology from Addis Ababa University.
