Grad Pride: Fekade Abebe ’18, The Practical Philosopher

Introducing “Grad Pride,” a video series that follows Shalem alumni as they pursue professions in a range of fields, with the goal of making an impact on their country. Fekade Abebe ’18 is an excellent example: A graduate of Shalem’s second class, he splits his time between the Regulations Division of the Prime Minister’s office and the pursuit of a Master’s in philosophy at Tel Aviv University; this year, he received a prestigious scholarship from the university to complete his studies at the renowned University of Sciences-Po in Paris. What’s the connection between policy and philosophy, and why are each complemented by the other? Fekade explains.
