Biruk was born in Wellega and lived there until 2022 when rebels killed his mother and father in an ethnically motivated attack on their village. Biruk was forced to drop out of school in grade 4 because of the attack and now lives with his grandmother in a refugee camp in Debre Birhan located more than 500 km from where he was born. He is grieving the loss of his parents and shares that he feels deep sadness. Biruk says that if he gets a sponsor, he would like to continue his education to one day become a teacher and live a better life.
