Here we go again at the Ethiopian new year event on 16/9/2018 and Kele has nailed it yet again. What an amazing speech, it was more than we would expect from an adult. Her passion and joy is an example to us all especially for young people all over the world. Kele was born in Ethiopia and came to NZ at 2 years of age. She is excellent at speaking and writing both her mother-language as well as English. Her success shows us we can keep our Ethiopian culture and succeed in NZ at the same time. All young Ethiopians,whether at home in Ethiopia or anywhere in the world, should take inspiration from her wonderful example. The time for young people to take leadership must be now because the world is moving so very fast. Kale is already involved in NZ parliament, she is actively involved in human rights, she has been to parliament twice advocating for the rights of the people, and will be meeting the with the Minister of Finance and the Prime Minister shortly. One Green MP has called her the a future female Prime Minister. We look forward to her becoming the first former refugee Prime Minister. On behalf of the Ethiopian community in Wellington we thank you for everything especially your excellent speech and the wonderful poem you shared with us. We are very proud of how you do all this independently and without help. You amaze us every day. We love you and we wish you every success. ...
