I celebrate a phenomenal woman today. An amazing woman who is a huge inspiration to me. A woman who has inspired so many. Sahle-Work Zewde is the president of Ethiopia and the first woman to hold the office.
Born in Addis Ababa, on the 21st of February 1950, Sahle-Work attended elementary and secondary school at Lycee Guebre-Mariam in Addis Ababa, after which she studied natural science at the University of Montpellier, France. A career diplomat and a veteran of the United Nations, she was elected president unanimously by members of the Federal Parliamentary Assembly on 25 October 2018.
Sahle-Work Zewde is the only serving female head of state in Africa. In her first address to parliament, Sahle-Work Zewde promised to be a voice for women and stressed the importance of unity.
She is truly a source of inspiration and a phenomenal woman!
