Adanech Makey joined the Alliance in September 2017 as a policy and advocacy intern. She is currently pursuing a bachelor of arts degree in interdisciplinary studies and psychology at Howard University.
Prior to joining the Alliance, Ms. Makey worked in the Highline School District in Washington state, where she served as a secondary tutor in various high schools throughout the district. Most recently, during the summer of 2017, Ms. Makey taught the Wing Luke Museum’s curriculum “Honoring Our Journey” to middle school students. Through “Honoring Our Journey” and metacognitive lessons, she taught underserved students about the importance of shaping their identities and sharing their stories.
Ms. Makey is interested in learning how psychological approaches can be used to impact education policies and practices to benefit underserved students.
