Anything else we should know? I was born in Seattle but grew up and lived overseas. I mainly grew up in Ethiopia with my grandparents. One of the things I appreciate about being over there is how to be thankful because when I was there, my eyes were opened to the extremely challenging condition for young people in other parts of the world. I want to make a difference in this world. But that difference has to start within all of us.
