Samrawit Neguse Silva
Samrawit was born in Axum, Tigray located in northern part of Ethiopia. She moved to the United States at the age of 7 and has lived there since then. Not having the opportunity to attend school in Tigray, Samrawit is grateful to have received her bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. Although she has been in the US for a long time, she has never forgotten her roots and where she comes from. She remembers what it felt like walking around her village with no shoes and she has the scars to show it. Knowing what it’s like and having the privilege to help others not go through it is one the main reasons Samrawit is happy to be a part of MSYShoes organization.
