Amanuel Shiferaw is a junior living in Carroll Hall, who is from Phoenix, Arizona but was born in Addis Ababa Ethiopia.

"I believe that I am a member of the best 100 men at Notre Dame obviously because of Carroll but also because the men of Carroll are simply outstanding guys. I am majoring in Marketing with a minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. On campus I am currently involved with several organizations. Primarily I am a member of the Wabruda which is the premier black men’s association and Junior Class Council. In addition, I also play rugby for the Notre Dame Rugby team which is new but I am loving it. I’ve served in a wide spread of jobs all over campus from being a Hall Clerk to being a Research Assistant to working in ND Marketing Athletics. As a first generation Ethiopian American, I genuinely want to be able to make an impact on the amount of students who could and should attend the University of Notre Dame that don’t have the access or resources to do so. I am also a Building Bridges scholar, which I believed was one of the strongest catalysts for my development as a first year student. Also, before I forget feel free to call me Amani and talk to me about literally anything."
