 Eshrat is a 25-year-old with dual major in political science and international relations from Florida International University and is now pursuing a master’s degree in International and World Studies.

From an early age Eshrat experienced the effects of racism, hate and bigotry. Even though she was too young to understand the seeds of “why” were sown.

Later on, as a young adult studying abroad, she and her friends stumbled upon a pub flying flags of racism with propaganda and paraphernalia all on display. It was this moment that Eshrat decided she must fight bigotry and hated in all its forms, through the use of media and the arts.

Her desire to change society by battling this horrific blight of hatred is why she is a CKMEF scholarship awardee.
