Hi! Welcome to my website! My name is Noah Tesfaye and I am a high school student in Silicon Valley. I post the occasional blog post here, but also share some of the video work I do in the portfolio page, along with some of my favorite pictures. I want this place to be a pure form of expressing who I am and if you enjoy the content you see here, follow me on Twitter and don’t hesitate to email if interested in video work. Thanks!

About

My name is Noah Tesfaye and I am a Silicon Valley high school student. I am a first generation Ethiopian and Eritrean American citizen, and I’m extremely proud of my heritage. I love to watch YouTube videos and Tarantino movies. I make YouTube videos, love co-running my student-led volunteer group, Buddies4Math, and learning. Some of my inspirations include my mom, Ava DuVernay, Shonda Rhimes, LeBron James, MLK, and Ta-Nehisi Coates. One day, I wish to become a Constitutional Law lawyer or a Constitutional Theorist/Political Theorist and hopefully argue a case in front of the Supreme Court.
