Kalkidan assists in facilitating the Cultural Enrichment programs. Alongside Raina, she creates a space that celebrates and explores the intersections of the identities of the young girls* we serve.

As both an immigrant and queer-identifying person, she believes in pride in identity and the power of self-determination. Prior to joining Powerful Voices, Kalkidan attended Georgetown University, where she partook in direct community service programs centered around reading and tech literacy, as well as the mentorship of young girls* of color. She enjoys the healing practices of laughing, writing poetry, and hot yoga. A fun fact is that she has lived on 3 continents.
