Why I joined this industry was, when I joined Addis Ababa University, at the age of 16, it was another world to me. Because the religion, language, culture and ways of life of the other student was totally different for me. So I was always eager to know about my follow student. But that was not enough, so I with draw from the university and read about the country’s history, culture, religion, socio economics and other stuffs. Knowing about my country initiates me to travel, so I took again the national examination and graduated scoring all A, with great distinction.
