UW Home Undergraduate Academic Affairs Make a Gift Contact

Adiam Tesfay

Hello! Being first generation to attend college, I struggled a lot and needed many campus resources, specifically a tutor, to get me through the experience, which is what makes me excited to work with the Center for Learning and Undergraduate Erichment (CLUE) and Academic Support Programs. CLUE is a fabulous resource for students to get support in their courses and in the general college experience as well. The academic achievement courses ASP staff teach will also allow you to learn to be an independant learner and work with a mentor as well. With so much support here for you at UW you are bound to be even more successful. Take advantage of all the help and resources out there. You only get one chance to be an undergrad so do it right!

I moved to Seattle from Arizona, where I was raised. I am originally from Eritrea, East Africa (was born in Sudan) and moved to Phoenix, at the age of 2. After high school I moved to Flagstaff to attend Northern Arizona University (NAU). I received both my BA in Speech Pathology and Audiology and my Masters in Education Psychology from NAU. I also worked at NAU as an Academic Advisor/Program Coordinator for four years helping students be academically successful within a TRIO program.

I like to volunteer, learn from and empower young adults, travel, listen to music and dance, love watching the performing arts, meeting new people, and I love learning new things, especially about culture and peoples' experiences. I have a huge family and friends all over the world so I spend a lot of time with them or talking to them. I am married and have a daughter that takes up most of my time now. I like reading and watching movies and I LOVE food, especially good food. I like to bake and am learning to cook more but love trying new recipes.

Feel free to send any feedback or suggestions/ideas you have about CLUE to clue@uw.edu.

See you here soon!
