Staff Snapshot: Andenet Emiru, staff advisor designate to the Regents
“I’m not here by chance,” says Andenet Emiru, staff advisor designate to the Regents. “I’ve had so many mentors and people who made sacrifices to help me get where I am. I feel a real responsibility to pay it forward.”
Andenet’s journey to the University of California has spanned a significant geographical distance — from his childhood in Ethiopia to his young adulthood in Minnesota to Sacramento, California, where he is currently the director of external partnerships & projects at UC Health’s Center for Data-driven Insights and Innovation (CDI2).
Still, his values haven’t strayed from those he learned as a child, as the son of two hardworking parents whose journeys inspired his own.
