 Lina Getachew Ayenew

Lina is the creator of Dalu: Introduction to Chinese for Amharic Speakers. Lina grew up in Ethiopia and is a native speaker of Amharic, the official language of the country. After graduating from Yale University with her undergraduate and master’s degrees, she got a great opportunity to teach public health at a university in China with the Yale-China Fellowship. It was then that Lina began to learn Chinese, almost at the age of 24. She loved it! She also noticed that a lot of the Chinese sounds could be easily captured with the Amharic alphabet. When she returned to Ethiopia after living and working in China, she browsed Ethiopian course stores looking for materials that could help Ethiopians learn Chinese. Given how intimate the relationship between Ethiopia had become, she was surprised that Chinese-learning materials were almost non-existent. So she decided to create one. Lina currently resides in Beijing with her husband, Nathan.

Yoonji Jung

Yoonji is a self-taught graphic designer who focuses on crafting marketing materials for non-profit organizations. She also has a background in Business Administration, and is able to understand her clients’ financial goals. Yoonji is especially drawn to cultural exchanges and language acquisition. This is perhaps due to the fact that she is a Korean national who grew up in Turkey. She became involved with Dalu: Introduction to Chinese for Amharic Speakers because she was drawn to the fact that it was building cultural bridges (and because her friend Lina would not let her say no!). She designs materials for the project on a free-lance basis. Feel free to take a look at her portfolio on her website, www.yoonjijung.com
