My pillow, my bank
By Bekele Woyecha on February 25, 2019
I was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; a country dubbed to be the cradle of mankind. I live in London, one of the greatest and cosmopolitan cities in the world. I love this amazing city. I also have seen beautiful cities in Africa, Europe, and North America. Thanking God for these great experiences in life. Professional wise, I am a Director of an organisation with extensive Community Organising experience. My job brings me in touch with people from across the world who relentlessly work hard to bring the kingdom of heaven on earth. People ready to change the world from ‘as it is’ to ‘as it should be’. I am concerned about the global refugee crisis. Many people across the world are persecuted for their religion, race, political belief, sexual orientation, and other reasons. It is disheartening to see fellow humans denied the right to a decent life. I hate it when some abuse others using their POWER. I also hate it when leaders cling onto power by force. Hence defending human rights is more than important for me. It is down to my generation to identify, train and coach the next generation of leaders and empower them with hope and love. The next generation deserves better.
