My name is Naomi Fasil Asegedom. I was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I grew up both in Ethiopia and Eritrea. I came to Austria in 2009. I went to a bilingual high school in Vienna. I am currently a full time student at the University of Vienna. I am in my 6th semester, and I study English and American Studies. I am a mother of two wonderful sons, Isaac who is 8 and Matteo who will turn 2 in December. I live with my partner and our two kids. Growing up writing used to be my passion. Somewhere along the road I stopped. I had forgotten about that part of me until I wrote a poem for a class assignment. I am very grateful for the encouragement and positive feedback I received from my professor.
