Merone Tadesse

“One evening in a grazing pasture in Wales I triumphantly uncorked a wine bottle using a ball point pen – only to be chased away moments later by an angry cow.”

Merone graduated from Brown University in May 2016 with a double major in International Development and Sociology, earning an honors degree with magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa distinction. Much of her academic and non-profit experience has focused on education and social inequality, and she is passionate about working towards a world where high quality education is broadly accessible.

As the Business Development Lead at Rumie she supports deployment operations for new and existing Rumie projects around the world.
