I have always been interested in teaching my language and sharing my culture with others, no surprise that I signed up to volunteer at GLN, Thank you GN Team! we all know that there is a large Amharic Speaking community in DMV area, I myself have been involved in serving this community either in refugee resettlement or providing language services to LEP population. Volunteering has always bee my passion even though I haven’t been giving it enough time as I would love to. This is an opportunity for me to give my time and teach my language to those interested and willing to invest their time. I hope my contribution will help others to communicate and give service in the Amharic speaking community.
