Tewoldemedhin, who migrated from Eritrea to the United States in 2019 was committed to helping children with disabilities because of her younger sister that lives with down syndrome and learning disability.

“Like her, I would love to use my neuroscience degree as well as this platform to make connections and open a school that primarily accommodates children like my sister. I would love to make adjustments to our current curriculums and make them successfully achievable for children with special needs.

“I would love to make the headquarters of my future school in Africa, and have branches of it around the world. I plan for the curriculum of the school to implement the importance of peace through teaching, role modeling and books to create confident peace oriented future leaders. And would love for the school to be an example to my fellow Africans, diasporas and foreigners to make sure people don’t flee of the country to get education but rather stay to get educated in our homelands.

The annual event which marked the 17th annual season of the beauty pageant was organized Afro USA Productions, a nonprofit organization formed by a US-based Cameroonian LadyKate De Jerome.
