Rebecca Omer
Rebecca Omer, co-founder of Sebseb Belu with her mother Sosena Assefa, was always fascinated by her culture as a child. She spoke Amharic with her mother and grandmother and became fluent. Her household was filled with cultural accessories and décor, and her mother had collections of cultural music. She started dancing at an early age and since then has been a proud ambassador of culture in her community, from teaching the language to starting Sebseb Belu with her mother.

Not only can Samuel dance, but he is also very passionate about political and governmental affairs in Ethiopia and is an active participant on social media as he shares his uplifting thoughts on building a strong and united Ethiopia.
