Maria Getahun has worked as an educator and a curriculum developer for over a decade. She graduated with a Master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology, majoring in Persian language and culture. Professionally, for many years she has collaborated with cross-disciplinary teams to design and develop a range of courses. Her love for foreign languages and sharing knowledge led her to teaching, first as a volunteer for a non-profit and then as a Russian Language and Culture Instructor at the Foreign Service Institute (FSI).
