This is my aunt on my mom’s side, Lidia Schaefer. She is actually my mother’s best friend from Ethiopia. They grew up together, but I’ve always known her as my aunt. She has been nominated as a CNN Hero for her work in Ethiopia. She has built a school in Ethiopia for the children of her village. She is also working on building a secondary school.
I know voting isn’t open yet…but I’m so excited and proud of my aunt!!!!!
