Seifu: 30 Neighbors. 30 Days. Spotlighting diverse Pittsburghers in social media and here on PittsburghUrbanMedia.com 

 

January 24, Day 5:  

“I didn’t open my business right away. I was employed and working for others until eight years ago. But, when the holidays came and we needed Ethiopian food, there was nothing here. We had to go to D.C.” -- Seifu


 “People call me from Ethiopia and ask about Pittsburgh - what kind of businesses are available, about employment opportunities, and about the school. They would like to know if there is an Ethiopian community, a church, and Ethiopian shopping, because they really want to be able to settle in a livable area close to work, school, and resources.” -- Seifu

 

Welcoming Pittsburgh is launching 30 Neighbors. 30 Days., in collaboration with PittsburghUrbanMedia.com and other partners, to spotlight stories from diverse Pittsburghers, including those hailing from countries around the globe, transplants from other American cities, and Pittsburgh natives. 

 

 Follow the campaign:  www.PittsburghUubanMedia.com, WelcomingPGH on Facebook and Twitter, hashtag #IamPGH. 30 Neighbors. 30 Days. runs January 20 – February 18, 2016.
