1/ A reflection about @timnitGebru's recent commenc. speech at @UCBerkeley! I've known her for 5 years now. My 1st encounter was when we met to feature her as a guest on my TV show. Our convo was great. I've a respect for her. She is someone with a solid academic/prof credential 2/ She is fighting to create an equitable digital future by ensuring AI won’t go astray. When our sisters didn’t have someone to look up to who looks/speaks like them, I was happy to have @timnitGebru on my show. I'll always be open for her to come inspire the next gen in #STEM.

1/ Let this infographic I put together sink in & discomfort us all to do something! With a total of 26,069,908 students (pre-primary to college), the chronic issue of access to quality education with a severe lack of essential infrastructure in place is very concerning! #Ethiopia2/ This infographic doesn’t even include the very concerning data (I don’t have the figures) of dropouts at different education levels due to economic, hunger, conflict, and other reasons.

There is no IFs & BUTs! Eleni (PhD) crossed a red line & there is no coming back from it. A lot can be said about her ‘explanation’ (sorry a blanket denial) to what she stated about #Ethiopia with a video evidence caught redhanded, but will focus of few key points — #NoMore (1/4)
HER WORDS IN THE VIDEO: “what is the extent of the post-transition marshal plan required to bring Ethio back to even where it was 3 years ago?”
HER DENIAL STATEMENT: “I don’t endorse the est. of a transitional gov, I asked…a hypothetical post-conflict situation.” #NoMore (2/4)
(1/7) I took this picture last week when I was in #Addis. As a person who was born & grew up there, it brought a lot of childhood memories. Played soccer with friends, ran in the morning & rode a bike. The several festivities I attended there is a memory that'll stay with me.
(2/7)Saddens me to see how this landmark isn't maintained well. The mud steps,lack of green space, trees,fountains & lighting makes it substandard for a city square. Had a chance to see many squares in cities around the world & I always desire to see Meskel Sq. with a better look
