“I was born in Ethiopia but I came to Fort Collins for college and then just stayed afterwards. I studied social work, and now I work at CSU. I've been here for 8 years. Fort Collins is my favorite during the summer. The liveliness, the warmth, all of the activities make Fort Collins, and especially Old Town, a great place to be. I appreciate that the diversity in this city is increasing. You always want to look around and find a face like yours, it makes you so much more comfortable. It's part of everyone finding a place of community, thats something that I really appreciate about Fort Collins. In Ethiopia, there is such a welcoming spirit. If you were a little kid in the street playing with other little kids and their parents called them in to eat, they would also invite you into eat. I try to bring that welcoming spirit into my life everyday.” Mekdelawit - CSU Employee Thank you to @zebrajellyfishphotography for the amazing photos!
