My name is Elroe Tadele, I am a software engineer based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I currently work for a national project called National ID Program which aims to provide residents with a unique, digital, foundational ID to ensure inclusivity in the provision of services as well as fast-track the digital transformation of Ethiopia. I have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and I am currently pursuing my master's degree in Software Engineering. I am especially interested in using digital tools to foster economic growth, as I believe that we are well equipped with numerous digital resources we need to bring forth change in our communities. I enjoy leveraging my technical skills with my desire to solve problems to identify issues in my community and advocate for others to do the same.
