Atti Worku (firstname.lastname@example.org) believes great things can spring from difficult conditions -- they just need the right nourishment. Born in Adama, Ethiopia, Atti has traveled the world developing her passion for encouraging the next generation of African leaders.
As the founder of Seeds, Atti recognizes the importance of holistic education, and is working to establish community development centers within urban communities throughout Africa.
Atti and Seeds are proving that what began as one woman's dream to plant hope for a handful of Ethiopian children can become a model for community-based African development.
Atti's unique beauty has been recognized across the world. A former Miss Ethiopia and international fashion model, Atti has graced runways from Cape Town to New York. She currently resides in New York City and attends Columbia University.
