Profile Information

Welcome, you awesome person!

Now that you have stumbled upon my profile, I imagine you want to know a bit about me. I never really liked the whole ‘self-introduction’, because I never really knew what to say and what to leave out. I’ll make an exception for you, thought. J

Who am I? I believe that where I am from speaks a lot about who I am, so I’ll start with that. I am from the beautiful land of Ethiopia, otherwise called Abyssinia; one of the most ancient, beautiful and historic countries in the world. Most people, when they hear the name ‘Ethiopia’, think of hungry people. I really don’t know why, because that happened a long time ago! Ethiopia is one of the most thriving countries in Africa. In fact, at the moment, Ethiopia’s economic growth rate is faster than that of China! Ethiopia is also the only country in Africa that has never been colonized, and the only one that has its own alphabet. It’s a country where people are known for their extremely hospitable nature, and a land where Christians, Muslims and people of other faith or lack of thereof, live in harmony, inseparably mixed together in the society. It’s a country held sacred by Christians, Muslims, Rastafarians and Evolutionary Biologists alike!

My name is Fresenbet. The word is from the ancient language of Ge’ez, and is translated to mean ‘Fruit of the Sabbath’. I am a student ofComputer Engineering. I love mathematics! I also can die for French fries! In fact, I am convinced that if French fries were a girl, I’d pursue her, confess my undying love, and propose! I love reading. I love writing. I love art. I love architecture.

I am a hopeless romantic at heart. I may not believe in soul mates, but I find a beautiful soul, I might just make her my mate. ;)

I really want to travel. One of the places I really want to visit is India. I am just too fascinated by the whole culture. It’s amazing. One day, I have a dream of becoming an author. I know I have a lot of work to do before that is achieved, and I am ready! My strong suit is poems, but my short stories don’t suck either.

Before I forget: You see how my profile name says ‘The Ethiopian’, right? That’s booksie’s fault. Unfortunately, my country wasn’t listed under the list of countries, so I just had to put it on my profile. I am really disappointed with you, Booksie! Writers are supposed to be from all over the world.

Let’s see…. What did I leave out? Ah. Yes. If anyone requests me to read their works, I would gladly accept. But, One, I expect you to read my works in return, and two; I am a very tough critic, and I am that way to help you improve so, no getting offended. Okay? Okay.J

My best friend Alex is on booksie, I promise you that you won’t be disappointed if you check her works out.

If you want to interact, I am on Facebook.

Peace and Love.
