Beka initially migrated to the US from Ethiopia in 1985, and attended the Northwest School in Seattle. Beka went on to get a Bachelors, then Masters, Degrees in Aeronautical Engineering from the Univ. of Washington. Beka has since worked in the aerospace industry at Boeing, with 6+ years in between working for Emirates Airlines in Dubai. As a member of the Ethiopian diaspora, he has been interested in finding effective ways that he can “give back”, and being on the board of ILAE is a great opportunity to help do his part for students in Ethiopia to get the kind of education he did at The Northwest School. Beka joined the board in May 2015.
