Hi, my name is Kndeya Gebrewahed. I am a recent graduate from Cornell University with a B.Sc in Biological Sciences and a Neuroscience concentration. I am currently working at NYU as a research assistant in a lab that focuses on studying Epilepsy. I am firm believer in youth empowerment because I have seen firsthand how my exposure thanks to the scholarship opportunity I received from Cornell University had enabled me to see things differently and achieve at a higher level in all aspects of my life. I am still going, and I am not at my destination yet, but I want to be that living testimony that to whoever is out there thinking however big an idea, that it is possible. If I can make it, you can too. I know that sometimes all it takes is to be shown that there is a path. I have had great mentors in my life and I really appreciate the opportunity for me to start being one.
