My name is kalkidan zemkedemealem I am a second year student, in International management. I aspire to be a lawyer and use my undergrad degree to explore and share my passion around the world. I enjoy learning new things and being able to share them with others in different ways that correspond to their learning styles. One of the many things I enjoy about DSB is the interactive initiatives it takes with its students. Allowing for a safe space to be able to ask questions and receive feedback from them as well as creating opportunities to be able to hear from experienced guest speakers and have the chance to meet and conversate with said speakers. Seeing these kinds of elevating gatherings helped me to believe in myself and in the process of speaking up, I believe I can make a difference as a representative of DSB students if given the opportunity!.
