Biography of emebet mesfin
I am an Ethiopian woman. Writing, walking and washing describe me best. My quest for identity is widening my outlook about the world. I come from two different cultures. My mother who speaks Oromigna is from Wadjitu located in Central Shewa. My father was born in Dorze Hayzo. It is found in the Southern part of Ethiopia. He speaks Dorzigna. I have strong ties with family, extended family members and relatives. Looking after nephew Nawi helped me to redefine myself in a new way these past two years. Corona Virus, the pandemic, is also teaching me lessons about human relations. I am the follower of The Art of Living spiritual leader, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. I hope to be a full fledged yogis someday. As a poetess, I do exercise poetry in some form but I have become a sonneteer who struggles to get iambic pentameter right.

where is the space?
where does child literacy take place?
adults let make-believe world replace
That's what's lacking
