Hi! My name is Kidus and I'm moving back home to Ethiopia for a couple of months. This will be my first time back in the country in nearly 20 years.
I'm a pretty easygoing person who likes being active. I enjoy longer-term traveling where I get to know people more intimately than I would on a short vacation.
I was born in Addis Ababa and I lived there for a couple of years before moving to Paris at the age of 5. When I was 8, I moved to Texas where I lived till I started college in New York. I currently live in Brooklyn. I have 2 siblings--an older brother and sister, and a very large and loving extended family.
I'm looking to connect with my home country and people, as well as, getting to do some volunteering.
I enjoy reading, hiking, swimming, and anything that gets me moving.
I'm looking for an exciting and relaxing adventure.
I'm looking forward to getting to know y'all.

I have plenty of customer service/constituent management experience and I enjoy talking to people. I'm fluent in English, and I understand Amharic (I'm working on speaking it more--hence this trip!).
I'm comfortable doing any type of physical labor. I have experience in home building. This ranges from wood cutting, wall installation, painting, tiling, and more.
I've been a camp counselor and I used to babysit my younger cousins often--so childcare is something I enjoy and I'm good at.
I grew up watching my mom garden, so I have some sense of weeding/watering/etc. and I would love to develop my skills further.
I'm also excited and willing to learn skill sets I might not already have.
English, Amharic (comprehend, working on speaking it more), very little Spanish
I look forward to getting to know you!
