I was born on the 15 of May 1983 and got my first degree in Public Health from University of Gondar in Ethiopia. I also got my Master Degree in Reproductive and Family Health form Addis Ababa University School of Public Health in 2012. Since then, I was serving as a lecturer in the Department of Public Health Reproductive and Family Health Unit. I am teaching maternal health, child health, adolescent health family planning, demography, and other familiar courses. I am also working as a principal investigator for researches on maternal and adolescence health and providing community service in the area of HIV AIDS prevention and control. I served as a head of the department of public health for two years and currently I am working as coordinator of community based education of College of Health Sciences. In due this I am working in planning, monitoring, and evaluating student’s training in clinical and community settings where they are exposed to the actual working environment of health care system before they graduate.
