Mussie Tesfay is an engineering student at Penn State #EthiopiansInPennsylvania

When Tesfay was 7 years old, his parents decided to move their family from Ethiopia to Uganda. They lived in Uganda for 10 years, most of which were spent in a refugee camp. Uganda provided the family with a new sense of peace and security. It also became a place where Tesfay could explore his passion for engineering.

The refugee camp did not have electricity, so a few of Tesfay’s neighbors bought generators and rented them to other people in the camp. Tesfay decided to start his own business — but instead of buying a generator, he built one.
