Pronouns: He/Him/His

My name is Habtamu Kabeto. I was born and raised in Ethiopia; moved to the United States in 2013 with my family. I have been a Summer Search mentee throughout my high school and college.

I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Geography, Data Science. I am passionate to work with the youth and I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to mentor at Summer Search, because I know how crucial it is to have a mentor of your own. There were many times I decided to give up on my education and dreams, but it was having someone that listed to me with no judgment that helped me get through those hard times. It is my intention and my goal to be there for the youth in times like that, so that they thrive beyond their obstacles. The youth is the future and the key to a better world.

In my free time, I enjoy learning and trying new things whether it is food or activity. I love biking, hiking, and technology besides spending quality time with my family.
