Dawit Endeshaw is a young Ethiopian journalist currently covering politics, economics, banking, finance, environment and public policy for The Ethiopian Reporter, both in Amharic and English. He also worked for Addis Fortune, the biggest English private newspaper in Ethiopia. Dawit chose to be a journalist right after finishing his degree in political science and international relations in 2014.
