Mahi Tessema

Tigi Mekonnen, mother of Breakthrough student, Mahi Tessema, joins her daughter at the Cultivating Growth Luncheon where Tessema shares her Breakthrough experience and talks of attending Dartmouth next fall.

Next fall at Dartmouth, I’ll major in Chemistry — a love Breakthrough gave me in 8th grade. I’ll minor in Education. My long term plan is to go into research and maybe even become a professor one day. My life has been built on the backs of Breakthrough angels, and I hope to make them proud.”
